Top 70 Market Trends in April

From Data-Powered Skincare Lines to Helpful Bull-Breeding Apps

— May 3, 2020 — Business
Some of the April 2020 market trends are quite unique, others enhance competition in their own category.

In terms of the former, Good Bulls by DataGene is a great example. The innovation is extremely useful and geared toward the agricultural industry. Deployed as a mobile app, it helps farmers make the best breeding decisions for their business.

The latter is a more robust category in the April 2020 market round-up. It includes things like KFC Canada's test that will determine if it is feasible for the fast-food chain to allow customers to order through Google Home and the initiation of Amazon's food delivery service in India. Netflix, another purveyor in this category, is testing out a yearly subscription model that will save consumers some money and ultimately create a more competitive environment in the world of entertainment streaming.
