Session title: Decision making when instability is the only constant
Session description: We learned in 2020 that most of what we “knew” about forecasting was both flawed and highly vulnerable to shocks. In 2021, we learned our thinking around the purpose of stores was equally incomplete. Then 2022 was the year that taught very harsh lessons in margin and balance sheet management - the pain of giving in to commercial “FOMO” and failing to pass cost through in good time reverberates still in 2023. In this presentation, Euromonitor International provides an overview of the scale of pressure faced in 2022, the responses that made the biggest difference, sharing how related consumer behaviors have changed in the last couple of years, and how that is translating into the home furnishings and cookware industries. Attendees will leave with pragmatic sector benchmarks, and they will see how rapidly the sector is pivoting to prepare for the next harsh lesson.

DIY Brands Unable to Pass on Inflation Costs

Abnormal cost inflation has caused waves of pain for companies since late 2020, but our new Inflation Projection Tool launched in July 2023 strongly indicates that tools and hardware in home and garden stands out as a category where companies were harmed more than most (and brands more than retailers, so far). This sector is badly dislocated around its ability to pass on costs from production to end consumers.

The increase in hybrid work with more time spent at home made consumers value their personal space and perceive a greater need to refresh it by using efficient and value-added methods. This has made the paint sector more attractive, making expansion opportunities particularly more attractive geographically, and across channels, with increases in spending on both branded and private label innovation evident.

New Business Models: From Connectivity Boom to Pandemic Dynamism and Inflation Surge

Only 55 companies have remained on the Fortune 500 list continuously since its inception in 1955. In that year, GM was the biggest company in the world. 70 or so years later, Wal-Mart, a discount store, is the biggest, while GM filed for bankruptcy in 2009. A generation ago, a “Kodak moment” referred to a picture-worthy moment. Today, it is widely used to describe companies that failed to adapt to market disruptions. Clearly, companies need to innovate their products and business models to survive.
