Sample Storage Pro Trends

Each Storage PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online storage articles, videos and images. Examples:

Dual-Purpose Care Elements of play are added to functional baby products for added entertainment Implications - Entertaining infants and toddlers can be quite the challenge, particularly while on the go, prompting parents to turn to infant products that are multifunctional and more engaging. Offering strollers and baby seats that double as toys as well as integrate media devices, retailers are providing a way to distract and entertain infants in a way that maintains a level of care and comfort while on the go.

Sustainable Play Parents search for eco products that will satiate their children's needs Implications - Eco-consciousness typically isn't particularly important to children, but it is to many parents who are becoming more aware of their household's consumption habits. Parents who wish to instill a sustainable mentality in their offspring are searching for products with eco-friendly packaging that's appealing to children. This shift demonstrates that eco-consciousness is being introduced to a younger demographic by increasing product engagement.

Ethical Couture Consumers are choosing sustainability over luxury in terms of packaging Implications - Fashion packaging has often centered around offering consumers a luxury experience. However, many retailers have been making the switch to eco-friendly packaging alternatives that are less about delighting consumers, and more about communicating a sense of ethics. This shift indicates that premium products are becoming less about a luxury aesthetic, and more about a powerful ethos.

Conscious Libation Alcohol brands adopt green branding techniques to showcase awareness Implications - Seeking to connect with a broader market audience, alcohol brands typically associated with luxe lifestyle and excessive behavior are turning to eco branding techniques to showcase a sense of awareness. Offering everything from recyclable packaging to environmentally conscious labeling, brands are moving away from aesthetics that promote opulence towards designs that recognize and subsequently promote social causes.

Sustainable Tech Tech packaging is adjusted to reflect consumers' eco-consciousness Implications - Tech products are often heavily packaged in ways that can be wasteful, a fact which doesn't sit well with the eco-conscious consumer. In order to appeal to this growing subset of the consumer population, many tech brands have made the switch to eco-friendly packaging. This switch signifies the pervasiveness of the eco movement, which has consumers demanding sustainable solutions from all industries -- even industries that are as integral to their lives as tech.

Product Mimicry POS displays are designed to reference the product within Implications - Because the majority of purchasing decisions are made in-store, point of sale retail displays have become an important factor for brands to consider. POS displays have effectively evolved into three-dimensional billboards for the product inside, either by directly referencing the contents of the product or the brand. This saves consumers the time of guesswork and lets the product speak for itself, battling the big-brand skepticism that comes with too many bells and whistles.
