REINVENTING THE CONSUMER PRODUCTS SUPPLY CHAIN
- Our proprietary research found that consumer goods companies can expect margins to shrink as much as 30% by 2030, as they deal with major industry disruptions.
- To maintain their margins and prepare for evolving consumer and retailer needs, some companies are upending their traditional view of supply chains.
- The most successful companies take a future-back and unconstrained view, build segmented supply chains and rigorously assess the digital tools that support them.
This squeeze from both consumers and retailers can take a huge toll on brands that don’t act quickly. Bain & Company estimates consumer goods companies that fail to take adequate steps could lose as much as 30% of their margins by 2030 (see the Bain Brief “Overcoming the Existential Crisis in Consumer Goods”).
