In recent years, CMG’s Regional Color Forecasts have displayed more parallels than contrasts. With societal, technological, environmental, political, and economic factors simultaneously influencing color, material, and finish on a global scale, the regional aspect of color forecasting is progressively blurring year after year.

Montaha will delve into the distinctive interplay of color families within the 2025+ World Color Forecast across CMG’s four regions. Through a meticulous analysis of historical data, the presentation aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the regional evolution of color. It will demonstrate how color is emancipating itself from regional confines, unveiling a dynamic and quasi-unified global shift in color preferences.
