2020 is only 26 days away!
Astonishingly, opinions camouflaged as “2020 trends” started showing up 245 days ago. That’s a kind of premature research release – however well-meaning – marketing history has proven is not prediction but events that have already made themselves felt in the marketplace.
So, a ton of stuff out there already past its use-by date. Not new “trends,” more like the new-normal.
Brand Keys (www.brandkeys.com) has decoded consumer behavior since 1985, identifying annual trends – real dynamics that change the competitive landscape – based, this year, on 120,000+ consumer psychological assessments in B2C, B2B, and D2C categories for 1,200+ brands.
That lets us predictively identify authentic and imminent trends with considerable (and independently-validated) accuracy. That lets us measure the true direction and velocity of consumer and category value shifts. More importantly, that lets us identify trends correlating with consumer behavior in the real-world marketplace at the 0.80+ level.
