Introducing the first Shopify Plus Industry Report

Tomorrow’s technologies are on the verge of colliding.

Significant shifts in consumer preference, behavior, and geographic centers of affluence will influence how those technologies are used for commerce.

What will that look like for your clients and prospects?

Inside the first Industry Report is insight and imagination for the future of:

  • Fashion and apparel
  • Cosmetics
  • Jewelry
  • Luxury goods

The report is thoughtful, beautifully designed, and structured in a way that allows even the busiest person to quickly learn:

  • The growth, geographic, and demographic trajectories impacting their vertical.
  • The trends influencing their vertical and creating new risks and opportunities.
  • The technologies that are likely to intersect and reshape the way commerce is conducted in the second half of the decade and beyond.

For example, the report will help you position clients doing business in the cosmetics industry for a future like this:

Besides the value you provide clients every day, our Industry Report will allow you to offer forward looking insight, like:

  • On demand, one-touch commerce powered by AI, and occurring in virtual or augmented reality will require merchants to accept payment seamlessly and across the globe.
  • Next generation wearables, and flexible skin-like cosmetics printed at home that act as quasi-medical devices and monitor health will require merchants to responsibly protect and handle all this new data, in ways that aren’t abusive or invasive.
  • AI powered virtual assistants combined with powerful new advances in segmentation, will require merchants to offer ultra-personalized customer experiences in real time.
