CHICAGO, Dec. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 2021 will go down as one of the most challenging years for retailers, from supply chain issues, staffing struggles, shifting shopper behaviors, and meeting the needs and demands of smarter consumers. SPINS Product Intelligence (PI) helped the wellness industry navigate these issues and is poised to help retailers and brands accelerate innovation in 2022. SPINS predicts that for the retail industry, this coming year will see accelerated investments in innovation and more rapid consumer adoption of products that fulfill the needs of their wellness journey.
Using Product Intelligence, SPINS has created and released year-end trends report* that provides deep insights into how consumer preferences are translating to shopping behavior. SPINS (PI) deploys machine learning, proprietary attribute mapping, and human knowledge to add a layer of intelligence that enhances the usefulness of raw product data. Product Intelligence helps retailers provide innovative merchandising, inform consumer experiences, and facilitate shopper discovery.
"Product Intelligence plays a critical role in helping retailers understand emerging trends and identify the innovation they need to help meet the changing requirements of their customers," said Tony Olson, CEO, SPINS. "We currently have over 380 consumer-facing attributes and over 1 billion data points that are able to identify actionable insights around innovation for both brands and retailers. An example of the power of our Product Intelligence is our omnichannel view of supplements, which shows that while in-store has over 70 percent of volume, almost two-thirds of the growth in this category is coming from online. This is the type of trend data retailers need to compete and succeed in the ever-evolving consumer omnichannel spending world."
The health and wellness industry has seen a secular shift in consumers’ focus toward better-for-you products. And while the spotlight typically falls on food and beverage, newer areas of considerable growth include alcohol, vitamin and supplements, and clean label skincare. New research shows that shoppers are applying the same attention to the ingredients in a variety of everyday products that they use as they are in their meal ingredients. To be able to better track changes in these areas, SPINS launched new attributes in August and the latest information highlights a need for these categories to be on the radar screens of retailers going forward. New trend data includes:
Vitamins and Supplements
Body Care
