The survey is based on a question: Is the relevance of brands based on improving people’s lives? These must fulfil their function and provide personal and collective benefits to consumers. Although the product itself is important, 90% of respondents expect to live new experiences through brands.

Corresponding to Mata, Consumer evolution in Spain has two origins; The economic crisis and the technological revolution. The first one provoked the impoverishment of the medium class making people more critic and sensitive with the enterprises. 

As well, due to the technological revolution citizen’s mind changed. Concretely, people started to prioritize speed, the price and sustainability in that order. Therefore, the transformation of society makes more difficult for the advertising companies to raise awareness.
