Here is what the report covers:
**Draws on research from four sources:
**a global consumer behavior survey (10,000 online consumers),
a **global executive survey (600 business executives),
**industry-growth leader analysis of the world's top 3,000 listed companies by market capitalization and macroeconomic analysis with Oxford Economics.
Here are a few highlights that caught my attention:
**See opportunity in consumer behavior change
**Consumer behavior-driven markets are expected to grow at three and a half times the rate of emerging economies and times the rate of developed economies between now and 2016
**One of the key insights that Accenture brings as a result of some of its latest research is,
**you have to look beyond the ‘who’ and the ‘where’ of what is
happening in consumer segments to really understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’
**looking at how consumer behaviour is changing and the pace and scale of that change can be even faster than the
growth rates in emerging markets.
