GLOBAL TREND BRIEFING

July 2014

Page 2: trendwatching.com's INNOVATION CELEBRATION

When was the last time you checked the pulse of consumerism?Because it’s beating faster than ever!

Every day, our network of spotters notify us about the most

compelling new consumer-facing innovations they encounter.

And whilst we use these to identify specific trends, there’s

also one overriding meta-trend that we’re continually struck

by: on an absolutely global scale, the quality and quantity

of innovation is relentless, fuelled by – and at the same time

fuelling – consumers’ insatiable NEWISM.

The takeaway: launching your own, equally brilliant

innovations* will be the only way to survive in an ever more

competitive, ever more global business arena.

* By innovation we mean anything that will get consumers spending, and preferably

the kind of spending that involves your products, services and experiences.

So this month, let’s simply celebrate a handful of the most bang on-trend innovations we’ve seen in 2014.

Dive into this selection of global inspiration. Because while

these might not all necessarily be ‘big’ disruptive threats

to your business, they WILL offer you plenty to think about

during your next planning session!

Take each example, even (especially!) those from different

industries and markets, and question if and how it could

suggest exciting new potential opportunities for YOU.

Because if you don’t respond to the changes in consumer

expectations and behaviors that the examples below are

establishing, someone else will ;)
