The future of wellness

The future of wellness

Stackable, seamless, and hyper-personal

Wellness is now a key economic driver, reshaping industries globally. However, our survey of 4,000 consumers in the US and UK reveals many struggle with their wellness journeys, highlighting the need for a new, tailored approach. In this diverse landscape, there's no one-size-fits-all solution.

Leaders in wellness can offer ‘stackable’ products, services, and experiences tailored to individual needs, and that seamlessly integrate into daily life. Brands must address six key areas of wellness: sleep, movement, nutrition, mental wellness, financial wellness, and social wellness.

Consumers feel underserved in these domains, with high interest but low satisfaction in stackable habits. The focus is on empowering consumers to curate personalised wellness solutions, blending data from various sources.

Brands that support unique wellness journeys and prioritise flexibility and customisation will earn consumer trust and loyalty in this evolving landscape.


78 percent of consumers have purchased sport and wellness equipment, products or tech in the last two years and 78 percent are interested in buying or subscribing to new health, fitness and wellness product and services in the next two years.


Only half of consumers rate their physical health as ‘good’ despite 85 percent wanting to prioritise it in their daily lives, and less than half (45 percent) are satisfied with their current sleep quantity and quality.

Major emerging consumer needs

1. All for ‘one’, not one for all

Consumers love digital wellness apps, but they can run the risk of either being too narrow in scope, or too generic. Rather than one-size-fits-all-approaches, consumers crave seamless, personalised recommendations based on real-time health data. Fifty-seven percent of consumers surveyed are willing to share their personal fitness and health data with brands to get products, services and experiences that are personalised to their needs.

2. To trust, or not to trust?

The continued emergence of wellness apps and devices that use biomedical data are not just blurring the line between healthcare and wellness, but also raising trust concerns. And this is impacting how consumers perceive wellness-related technology and apps. Brands need to overcome trust barriers and unlock opportunities identified in our survey.

3. The price matters: Stackable pricing

Affordability in wellness is an acute need for future consumers. Our survey respondents seek more affordable access to stackable habits, particularly around health and personal care.
