Ipsos Update – June 2023

Inflation, agriculture, eCommerce… Ipsos Update explores the latest and greatest research & thinking on key topics from Ipsos teams around the world.

Has concern about inflation plateaued? Our What Worries the World survey suggests so – although concern remains at historically high levels, it has at least stopped rising each month. We explore public expectations surrounding inflation in more detail in the new wave of our 29-country Inflation Monitor.

Also in this edition: how consumers have taken advantage of social media to drive the future of brands; how climate change, globalisation and technological advances will all shape the future of farming; the rapid expansion of eCommerce in the MENA region; and how brands can assess the impacts that their ESG efforts have on brand choice.

We also travel the globe to explore the latest findings from Ipsos in different countries; take a look at a selection below:
