For 2013, we have chosen not to highlight trends such as thrift, urban consumers
and the consumer love affair with mobile technology in stand-alone trends
because they have become so ubiquitous – preferring to discuss them in the
context of other key global consumer trends. Meanwhile, the lack of a dedicated
trend about emerging market consumers underlines the fact that our world is no
longer experienced as ‘The West and the Rest’ and because consumer culture is
everywhere. For instance, in our discussion of the local love trend, we will
analyse the swelling pride in local culture and products which accompanies the
diluted fascination with some global brand offerings.
