On the report’s launch, N. Chandramouli, CEO of TRA Research, stated, “Many revolutions have occurred throughout the Covid years, and customer preferences and views have shifted significantly. Consumer Desire is the most essential indicator of a consumer’s interest in a brand since it assesses the deep psycho-socio-cultural pulls in a consumer’s mind. Desire is so deeply embedded that it is usually difficult to alter, but several brands have capitalized on the Covid years by establishing new relationships with their customers.”
