Consumer Executive Top of Mind Survey 2013 

The consumer sector continues to face rapidly changing markets, volatile costs and new sources of competition. The economy and consumer spending is still struggling in many countries. New markets are emerging as incomes in developing economies rise, as the affluent aging population grows and as consumer preferences continuously change. How are consumer company executives navigating this complex and changing environment?

KPMG and The Consumer Goods Forum asked the leaders from 442 of the world’s largest consumer companies what issues are Top of Mind for them this year. Over 90 percent of the survey respondents were chief executive officers, chief operating officers, senior management executives, or senior finance executives. The companies they represented include manufacturers (55 percent) and retailers (45 percent) in the food, drink, and consumer goods sectors.
