The economy has been hit hard by COVID-19. In order to survive and grow, industries and companies need to rethink their business models. Many companies from the ‘old economy’ will disappear, while others will grow faster than ever before. Digitisation will play a decisive role in these changes. Companies that use technology will recover faster after a crisis or recession. They have enormous resilient power. Trendforce.one provides the knowledge and inspiration needed to turn challenging times into success stories.

What can you expect from us?

Startups and organisations

The organisation of the future is an ecosystem. It relies on innovations from specialists outside the organisation and perhaps even from outside the country's borders. Startups, innovative companies and scientists all contribute to your innovation. You will receive proposals from startups, innovative organisations and universities that you can learn from and partner with. 

Case studies and experiments

We also analyse case studies of and experiments by organisations. These provide insight into how one deals with innovation, new technology, a recession or the impact of the current crisis. We can learn from the successes and failures of others. This lowers unnecessary costs and results in a higher change rate.

Scientists, specialists, trendwatchers, futurists and leaders from all over the world share their forecasts and analyses about the future. We list them for you and provide explanations and context, transforming the information into insights that offer direction and guidance.

Analyses and forecasts

You will receive a periodic overview of digital innovations and business models in your sector that might be of interest, but we also look at other industries. Digital business models provide guidance during a crisis or recession. In addition, organisations without a digital business model have no right of existence in the future.

Business models and innovation

We analyse many trends within your sector or area of expertise. We study multichannelling, chatbots, payments, logistics, and many other trends. These insights enable you to make the right decisions and help you enter into valuable partnerships.

Trends with impact

We gather, analyse and interpret current (inter)national statistics. We continuously conduct international research into important issues currently at play, such as the economy, innovation, transformation and the role of technology.

Statistics

You will receive information about current trends in the retail sector. The topics will be determined on a monthly basis, so that you’ll receive the most recent knowledge and inspiration.

Important trends for the retail sector

The store of the future
What will the store of the future look like? Will we only buy online and cause physical stores to disappear altogether? Or will shops turn into multi-purpose, multi-experiential spaces that use VR/AR to wow customers into buying their products? Most likely, the shopping experience of the future will be a combination of all of the above – and more.
Hyper-personalisation
Shopping will become increasingly personalised. Think in-store VR/AR promotions, interactive displays, smart mirrors in fitting rooms, and AR-overlaid product information. Smart systems will recognise and greet you by name as you enter the store, guiding you to all the things they know you will like. A 3D-printer will print your perfect, tailor-made product while you wait.
Logistics & delivery
In the world of tomorrow, drones will deliver within a few hours, while 3D printers can even ensure real-time delivery. Blockchain-based platforms will enable consumers to trace product origins and authenticate luxury goods. Warehouses will become increasingly automated. Packages will be fitted with sensor tech and GPS so that their exact location can be monitored at any given time.
The future of payments
In the future, we will pay with a swipe, transfer money with a heartbeat, or confirm payments with a smile or iris scan. In the background, business systems will automatically carry out all kinds of processes. We will also be able to pay with our self-driving car or personal wearables.
Chatbots & holograms
Online, you will likely come across interactive, conversational chatbots that know all your likes and dislikes and make spot-on suggestions. Browsing will become increasingly voice-empowered. You’ll be able to visit virtual showrooms, where VR/AR tech will enable you to try and experience whatever you’re interested in buying. Hologram prototypes will show you the progress of your product being created.
Ultra-channel marketing
Marketing will become increasingly personalised and immersive, reaching potential customers in mind-blowing ways. Think VR, AR, interactive signage, and chatbots. You’ll receive tailor-made offers via an app, smart TV, e-mail, or your smartwatch. ERA – Emotion Response Analysis – will use EEG tech to measure your emotional response to online products or digital advertising.

Een crisis of recessie raakt veel sectoren en bedrijven. Tegelijkertijd ontstaan er veel kansen. Veel nu succesvolle bedrijven zoals Netflix, AirBNB, FedEx, Disney, Microsoft en zelfs Apple zijn opgericht in moeilijke tijden. Bedrijven als Lego en Ralph Lauren hebben zichzelf tijdens de laatste crisis opnieuw uitgevonden. Ze kozen voor nieuwe markten, andere businessmodellen en digitalisering. Amazon en Tesla gebruiken de huidige crisis om nog verder te groeien. Vele bedrijven zullen deze crisis ten onder gaan, omdat ze onvoldoende geïnformeerd en geïnspireerd zijn.
