Top 100 Customization Trends of 2015

From Custom Nail Polish Kiosks to Affordable Bespoke Bikes

— January 31, 2016 — Autos
The top 2015 customization trends speak to a widespread consumer interest in personalized good and services that go above and beyond expectations. From beauty services that will create custom nail polishes to match any shade to bespoke bicycle brands that let you pick and choose desired parts, there are plenty of examples of innovation goods and services marketed on the premise of offering customization.

One winning example of a customized service is Coolers, a web platform designed to help consumers select a color scheme for a particular room in their home. An intriguing application in the design and decorative space, Coolers is an example of how this consumer fascination with personalization can be applied in any sector.

To dive deeper into the patterns of opportunity taking hold ahead of the new year, be sure to explore our 2016 Trend Report.
