Alessandro Casartelli, Executive Director at GP Bullhound, said: “We have seen different trends emerge strong in Q2. Augmented Reality’s growing adoption has been initiated through increasing technological advancement and higher usage by millennials and Gen Z consumers, with industry giants doubling down on investment in recognition of strong use cases. As consumers become more comfortable with the idea of second-hand purchases, driven by an environmentally-conscious sentiment, the popularity of designer rental and clothing resale marketplaces continues to grow. Lastly, Buy Now Pay Later presents lucrative opportunities for retailers. On the M&A side, we saw a slight slowdown in transaction volumes, but fundraising remains at healthy levels as capital continues to flow into marketplaces.”
