Sensory fusion represents consumer desire for intense and complex sensations, resulting in a better product experience. The desire for maximal sensory benefits drives demand for more sensorial appealing, indulgent products in order to optimize the consumption experience.

Globalization and increased exposure to different cultures have resulted in more informed, demanding consumers. This requires persuasive strategies from brands focused more on emotional than functional aspects to strengthen brands at a subconscious level.

Sensory & Indulgence is one of the eight mega-trends as being integral to shaping the FMCG landscape, reflecting consumers’ continually higher expectations of quality and variety. A core part of this mega-trend, Sensory Fusion highlights the opportunity for brands to create products that maximize the sensorial benefits for consumers

Sensory Fusion is driven by two main key factors

  • The need to differentiate: Differentiation is essential in today’s marketplace to satisfy consumers’ attitude to experimenting with new varieties and to seek out new emotional benefits during the consumption experience.
  • Broaden tastes and preferences: Traveling and immigration have widened people’s exposure to different cultures, hence making exotic flavors and ingredients more familiar to the average consumer.

Consumer targets

  • Millennials, Generation X, and female consumers are target segments in developed markets.
  • The sensory appeal of a product is a key driver for consumers in emerging markets.

Consumers are unconsciously controlled by the thousands of sensory stimuli they experience on a daily basis as they see, hear, smell, taste, and touch brands. Formulators and brands are increasingly capitalizing on this, improving sensory marketing to engage with customers.
