Who does the team performing the analysis consist of?

Project Manager

Why is it worth performing a trend analysis?

  • Trend analysis allows e-commerce companies to understand what products and services are popular, how customer behaviour is changing and what the latest technologies and solutions are.
  • It helps to identify risks that could have a negative impact on the business. For example, if trend analysis shows that competition from overseas is increasing, an e-commerce company may consider new marketing or sales strategies.
  • It can help e-commerce companies predict what trends will prevail in the future. This allows them to make business decisions that will be compliant with these trends.
  • Can be used to identify new business opportunities. For example, if a trend analysis shows that mobile shopping is growing in popularity, an e-commerce company may consider investing in expanding mobile solutions.

What is a trend?

Trends are recurring patterns in data that can be used to predict future events.

How long does a trend analysis take?

The duration of the analysis depends on the size of the shop and the number of survey items selected. However, we assume that the analysis will take approximately 2-4 weeks.

What methodology is used for trend typing?

Various methodologies can be used to type trends, such as:

  • Time series analysis – involves examining data over time to identify repeating patterns.
  • Regression analysis – is the building of a mathematical model that describes the relationship between variables.
  • Network analysis – is the study of relationships between different elements of a system.
  • Influential factor analysis – is the identification of factors that may influence the development of a trend.
