The Matrix of Drivers

The Matrix of Drivers provides market intelligence and foresight into consumer trends and international agreements. Industry bodies can use this research to assess the magnitude of drivers affecting their sector (eg climate change, plant-based protein trends), anticipate change, and assist producers to adapt. Primary sector producers and entrepreneurs can use The Matrix to meet market demands or seek out new high-value, low-footprint opportunities, and avoid lurching from one trend to the next. See table 3.1 in the report.
