MANILA, PHILIPPINES — In a world where trends evolve rapidly, the challenge of staying ahead is embraced by a select group known as Prosumers – the avant-garde 15-20% of consumers who define trends before they reach the mainstream market. Havas Prosumer Reports, a series of thought leadership publications for over 10 years, is part of a global initiative to share information and insights across the expansive Havas network, including the Philippines with Havas Ortega.
Prosumers, not just consumers, are the trailblazers of market dynamics. Known for their forward-thinking mindset, they adopt ideas six to 18 months ahead of the public. Influential trendsetters in their social circles, Prosumers are driven by a proactive approach to purchasing decisions, with social and environmental consciousness shaping their choices and influencing the rest.
Navigating Diverse Topics
Havas’ Prosumer Reports cover a wide array of topics, reflecting the ever-evolving landscape of consumer priorities. From gender and health to urbanization, food, finance, and technology, each report delves into the pulse of current trends. This diversity allows the Havas Network Prosumer teams to offer a comprehensive understanding of the evolving consumer landscape.
