consUMER MOTIVATIONS

Every 6 months, our teams defy the individual and collective motivations of consumers. They are subsequently filtered through evolutionary variables (innovation, creation, fashion, invention, confirmation, macro change etc.) to highlight 4 consumption behaviours that will influence your customers in the following 12-24 months. Our research is based on 8 perennial motivations established for a period of 10 years.
