Direct-to-Consumer in Consumer Goods – Thematic Research

This thematic research report takes an in-depth look at the direct-to-consumer trend in the consumer landscape and it presents related tech, consumer, and macroeconomic trends. An industry analysis is also present, highlighting the impact of COVID-19, key use cases, and the mergers and acquisitions for this theme.


There are three aspects of the usual shopper journey that needs to be tackled and addressed when adopting a D2C model: how to interact and pull in consumers, how to deliver the product and what the product should be. The model allows for more adaptability and tailoring in each of these segments compared to traditional retail channels.

Creative strategies have been employed by companies to establish a loyal customer base and that direct line of communication can be leveraged for future innovations.

The D2C channel is especially well suited for FMCG, because the frequent rebuying of products can be tapped into using subscription models.
