The Challenge.

A report by London-based market research firm Euromonitor says that 39% of Filipinos prefer to purchase local products while another 40% are more interested in shopping in local stores. These figures are higher than the global average of 28%. The rising interest is attributed to the spike in online shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic, as Filipinos staying home found new brands to support.

The findings are striking, especially given that 71% of Filipinos recognize they have more access to foreign brands compared to five years ago.

Yet the rising demand presents a challenge for Filipino entrepreneurs.
