Consumption is outstripping bio-capacity. As the pressure on the planet's limited resources increases, interest in sustainability will only heighten. Therefore, bio-utilization - using biological ingredients in product formulations - is being increasingly replaced with more sustainable ways of obtaining natural ingredients.
The "green" market space is becoming increasingly cluttered, making it more difficult for brands to achieve differentiation. Biomimicry enables brands to develop a more interesting and engaging brand story. It makes new product concepts more tangible and also conveys manufacturers as being a supporter of - rather than threat to - nature.
