This post highlights opportunities for brand owners based on key consumer trends for 2024. It is all about finding the optimal ingredient setting your product apart from the competition. We believe MenaQ7® is such an optimal ingredient.
Consumers prioritize ingredients for better value
According to Innova Market Insights “Ingredients Taking the Spotlight”, is at the top of their identified consumer trend of 2024. In other words, the hero of the product is the ingredients within it. Consumers look for value in the ingredients within the product and one-third of consumers report looking at the ingredients of interest on the product packaging.
Despite the cost-of-living crisis, FMCG Gurus also highlights value as a key trend with consumers. Specifically, consumers seek value in the form of efficacy, quality, and convenience. They ask questions like; does the product serve my needs, is efficacy-proven, is it trustworthy and is the dose form appealing? A key takeaway from FMCG Gurus is that value is more important to consumers than the lowest price, and brands should focus on innovation rather than being a cheaper “me-too” product.
Consumers Prioritize Prevention and Look for Clinically Proven Ingredients
According to Innova Market 1 in 3 global consumers report being more proactive when it comes to their health and prioritize a strategy of prevention when it comes to their physical health. When asked what their major concerns related to physical health are, the response was 1: Weight Management 2: Heart Health 3: Bone and Joint Health.
As consumers are getting more educated, higher inspection of your product is taking place. Consumers expect evidence and proof of the efficacy relating to the claims attached to a product. Brand owners who can provide evidence and documentation as part of their product information will be in a stronger position to build trust with consumers. Choosing branded ingredients with clinical documentation is crucial in meeting this demand.
Natural Ingredients and Sustainability
Beyond proven and science-backed claims, consumers are still looking for natural ingredients that are free from artificial additives, preservatives, and chemicals. Consumers are increasingly conscious of the impact of their choices on personal health and the environment. Features like Organic and non-GMO are often associated with a holistic approach to health and well-being, resonating with consumers seeking a more natural and integrated approach to their health. FMCG Gurus highlights a growing focus on ingredient transparency, where consumers are increasingly attentive to product labels and seeking healthy, clean, and recognizable ingredients.
