FMCG Industry: In-Depth Impact Analysis
Since the lockdown, consumers have been heavily stocking up on basic FMCG and home luxury goods in all monitored markets. It’s noticeable that retailers with strong digital capabilities are experiencing a growth (having delivery slots booked for months in advance), while the retailers with weaker e-commerce offerings are losing consumer interest.
At the same time, it’s important for FMCG brands to hit the right communication tone and not to risk having their campaigns considered inappropriate. Data shows that only brands with purpose-driven advertising and social support seem to be successful.
