“Consumers have adapted their media and shopping habits to reflect their altered lives during this pandemic,” said Mungo McCall, Client Service Director at Nielsen.

“As the country recovers, we expect some of those behavioural changes to become embedded as part of the new normal. Agility and knowledge will be the key for marketers as life rebounds. Those who can begin to strategically evolve their approach to changing consumer behaviours now, will be way ahead of the game when consumers find post-pandemic balance.”
