Retail/FMCG trends for 2013

The Retail Bulletin and ResearchFarm have produced a report predicting Retail/FMCG trends for 2013. The bad news is that the economy in 2013 looks little better than 2012. However, there is good potential for smart TVs, mobile technology, and Big Data. It believes that the supply chain will be a major issue – with key topics including load sharing, load utilisation and the move to same day delivery. “Immediacy” will be a big trend – with retailers trying to remove any barriers from the shopping process and speed up conversions and check outs through AR capabilities, QR codes and direct CTAs, as well as same day delivery to move closer to a ‘one click shopping’ experience.
