The key themes are divided into digital and environmental trends, which include insight into how consumer brands will embrace and adapt to the evolution of the Metaverse, the move of Biowearables, and the desire of greater convenience by consumers.

Global Industries Outlook 2022 - Mid-Year Update
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has permeated across many of our global themes. The high inflation environment and subsequent cost of living crisis and rising interest rate environment in many markets has had knock-on-effects for other trends we expected to see play out. In general, while we have seen a waning economic impact from Covid-19, the Russia-Ukraine crisis has prevented full economic normalisation globally, impacting growth across several industries.
Russia-Ukraine Conflict: Global Ramifications For Industries
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused major disruption for industries on a global scale, through both direct and indirect means. We expect this disruption to last throughout 2022 regardless of the outcome of the conflict, owing to the scale of physical damage and the displacement of people.
