TrendSights Overview: Comfort & Uncertainty – Investigating the impact the Comfort & Uncertainty mega-trend has on innovation across the FMCG landscape

Comfort & Uncertainty is one of the eight mega-trends that GlobalData covers as part of our TrendSights series of consumer insight studies. The analysis covers what the mega-trend is, why it is important, who is most influenced by it, and how brands and manufacturers can capitalize. The research concludes by identifying where the mega-trend is heading next and how long it will last.

As consumers become more aware of their health and wellbeing, greater importance is placed on the inclusion of specific ingredients and health claims that align to different dietary needs. This has resulted in consumers seeking out products with transparent and natural formulations, therefore appearing more healthy. Globalization and global economic activity continues to make the lives of consumers increasingly more strenuous and challenging. This is certainly true among working professionals who struggle with time- and stress-related anxieties. The demand for simple positioning is high, including formulation and information.
