The CBD industry is on course to hit $2.1billion by 2022, and the UK market alone doubled in size last year, as consumers are seeking out CBD as a remedy for disrupted sleep, anxiety, and chronic pain.

UNBOX LONDON is very active in this space & we are part of a great network of UK based CBD companies.


Smart Home

The UK smart home market was worth £900m (over €1.1 billion/$1 billion) in 2017 and combined with the ongoing demand and growth for voice technology - it is growing at a rapid pace.

We started working with our first voice/connected home client back in 2017 and also conducted some deep research into the UK market (Including voice technology).


Food Innovation

In the UK there has never been a better time to be a food and bev challenger brand. The latest market trends show that small food brands are capturing two to three times their share of growth while large corporate brands are, at best, flatlining.

Our friends at ForwardFooding have created The Global Foodtech Map which maps the food innovation landscape.
