Plenty of new consumer needs were established during the pandemic. Which are here to stay and which are fleeting? How will consumers navigate a world where contagious diseases are disruptive rather than irritating? And what is and will be important to consumers in their purchase decisions in the near term?
While the home + housewares industry saw record growth from the pandemic, many other industries faced significant headwinds. What lessons can we, in the Housewares industry, learn from those industries that have had to think differently in order to survive- what of their experience can make us more adaptive?
