For retail brands, this past year was an unsettled one. Businesses moved to consolidate pandemic-era shifts toward e-commerce, but in the same time inflation has spread all over the world
Convenience, safety, reliability, faster speeds and sustainability take their place alongside price as key decision factors in the path to purchase.
Kantar has recently published 2 collective studies in order to help retailers and brands to cope with these tensions :
eCommerce ON covers 15 categories in 19 different countries, offering foundational understanding of eCommerce on the following aspects.
- who is buying the category online, and how?
- how people select and buy?
- understand triggers and barriers?
In de presentation deck, Adrien Germain Thomas, Head of e-commerce and commerce, Kantar Insights, and Andrea Corti, Head of Commerce, Kantar Insights Italy, share some key results of this study.
