This report takes a future-thinking approach; it aims to identify trends emerging from within our society and understand what human demands are driving these developments. We discuss each trend with reference to the driving forces of human behaviour, and where we have seen other industries begin to tap into these evolving demands of UK and international consumers. From this, we have drawn conclusions about these growing patterns of consumer behaviour, offering suggestions about how the convenience sector can best prepare for long-term shopper demands.

At HIM we believe that these trends will have a major impact on the convenience sector in 2018 and beyond, and our aim is to highlight how the sector can maximise the opportunities arising from these.
