Introducing Consumer Trends: AI, Ozempic, and the Economy

Is there anything hotter this summer?

Consumer Trends: AI, Ozempic, and the Economy
It's slides day.

I’m excited to share a new Consumer Trends report, my latest collaboration with Coefficient Capital.

This latest Consumer Trends report is a 102-slide presentation that you can view and download for free, looking toward what’s next.

It’s the latest in our ongoing Consumer Trends series, which has now generated seven reports. (All of this continues to be inspired, of course, by analyst and investor Mary Meeker’s legendary Internet Trends report.)

  • Topics include: How consumers are thinking about (and using) generative AI tools, how they think about booming weight-loss drugs like Ozempic, and how they’re feeling about their financial outlook.
  • Also: A look at the nascent non-alc beverage industry, how restaurant delivery maintained its pandemic boost, and our view on creator-founded brands.
  • Results from our seventh original Consumer Trends survey of more than 3,000 US consumers, in partnership with Toluna. Sample insight: 28% of US workers say they’re worried that AI will replace them at work within five years. (Also: More Americans would rather feel 25% healthier than earn 25% more money.)

I’ll also be exploring many of these topics further for members. And we plan to keep this series going. So if you’re new to The New Consumer, please consider joining as a member.
