Why do megatrends affect us all?
Because megatrends will change the world for ever. They are being driven by fundamental social change that will continue for at least 25 years and influence global developments in society and business at macro level – as well as many different walks of life for each and every individual at micro level. At macro level, three megatrends are defining this transformation with exceptional intensity: globalisation, digitisation and new mobility. For Hettich, four further megatrends are of particular interest because they will do much to change the way we live and work in future: individualisation, urbanisation, silver society and work evolution.
Megatrends will have global impact and be with us for many years
Making it good policy to waste no time in addressing them now. At Hettich, we keep a constant eye on watching and evaluating megatrends based on a wide range of tools and studies by prominent research institutes. We filter out the most important findings for ourselves and our customers, and discuss them on a proactive basis.
