Trend Briefing 2017

17 : 03 : 2017 Civic Brands : The Focus Filter : Neo-kinship

London – LS:N Global introduced three key trends that will shape future consumer behaviour to a packed hall of delegates at the Barbican’s Milton Court.

  • From the political to the personal, the old world order has broken down, but new systems are emerging amid the dislocation, fragmentation and division
  • Driven by fresh attitudes, ethics and unprecedented circumstances, the future looks very different to what has gone before

Consumers are entering The Age of Re-Engagement, in which ‘brands must persist rather than sit back in order to re-engage consumers’, Chris Sanderson, co-founder of The Future Laboratory, told delegates at our Spring/Summer 2017 Trend Briefing.

The first of our macrotrends, Civic Brands, examines the mindset of disillusioned consumers in a Dislocated World, who are demanding that brands act as forces for good in society.

The second macrotrend, The Focus Filter, examines the effect of rising levels of multi-sensory stimuli on consumers’ attention spans and the growing desire for outlets that help them to re-focus and re-engage with the world.

Our third macrotrend, Neo-kinship, explores the breakdown of the nuclear family and how the rise of technology is shaping how people conduct relationships and raise children.

The macrotrends were followed by a Fast Strategy panel discussion, where members of the Future Laboratory’s strategy team responded to questions submitted via text message by delegates throughout the day.
