Consumer Products

With an onslaught of new entrants, consumer product companies face significant challenges to differentiate their products in the face of changing consumer tastes.

The consumer products industry has seen the demise of traditional retail channels; the acceleration of product development; new technologies such as social media which change brand marketing; active lifestyles changing styles and fashion; global sourcing which pushes down manufacturing costs; and increased efforts to protect intellectual property and enhance brands.

The competition in this marketplace is intense, particularly in the United States but also worldwide, creating pricing and margin pressures, while online retailers such as Amazon are creating new channels of distribution.

Corporate Fuel has been active in these industry segments:

  • Automobile accessories
  • Retailing
  • Fashion apparel and jewelry
  • Fashion accessories
  • Home furnishings
  • Consumer electronics and appliances
