TrendSights Analysis: Customization – Tapping into the hyper-customized world of health-conscious, expressive, and experience-seeking consumers

Summary

Individualistic and empowered consumers desire to take control of all aspects of their needs and lifestyle preferences. To do so, in an efficient, effective, and enjoyable way, consumers turn to three types of customization. Active customization allows consumers to create/co-create products tailored to their needs; passive customization enables brands to create for consumers unique needs; smart customization incorporates technology advances to facilitate uniquely tailored offerings.

Trend drivers include in this report –
– Individualism: Consumers desire products and services that cater specifically to their unique needs and lifestyle preferences.
– Proactive Wellbeing: Consumers want to take control over their health and wellness by seeking products tailored to their individual needs.
– Experience Economy: Consumers seek out novel and experiential ways to indulge in authentic and premium manner.

Consumers want products that are tailored to their own unique needs. They are intrigued by the concepts of products specifically made by or for them. In a world where individuality and expressiveness are highly promoted, brands are encouraging consumers to look beyond the standardized, mass-appeal offerings flooding the market.

Allowing consumers to be involved in the product creation process is highly important for today’s expressive, novelty seeking consumers. This type of “active” customization drives innovation by directly involving the individual consumer in the creation process. “Passive customization” allows the brand to create for the consumer with a moderate degree of involvement. “Smart customization” is driven by the latest tech innovation in creating unique user experiences through high-level of tailored products and services.
