o9 Consumer
Survey 2023

  • Over the last few years, volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (a.k.a. VUCA) have been top of mind for business executives. It’s also had a very powerful impact on consumers’ purchasing decisions and overall trust in supply chains.

The pandemic and the aftermath of this unprecedented event have upended many aspects of our daily lives—including how we shop, what we choose to purchase and product availability.

A consumer survey conducted by o9 and TEAM LEWIS

finds that supply chain constraints impacting product availability have played a role in consumers’ shifting purchasing patterns.

In 2022, as many people resumed social gatherings, shopping in stores again, and began returning to the office, brand executives likely believed that consumer shopping behavior would return to business as usual by 2022. However, that was not the case.

52%indicated that they experienced supply chain disruptions.
49%reported issues with product availability for goods that they usually purchase.
