Consumer Products

Consumer goods companies have been dealing with turbulence and disruption for years, but not like this. A global pandemic, massive shifts in consumer behavior, supply chain shocks, and competition from new players are just some of the factors putting the brakes on growth. An intense focus on sustainability has consumers and companies at every stage of the value chain rethinking their habits, priorities and ways  of doing business.

Despite those pressures, the list of leading CP companies has remained remarkably stable, a testament to the advantages of scale. By reshaping their portfolios, revamping their go-to-market models and pursuing operational efficiencies, scale leaders have managed to remain on top—for now.
