The reason for such gargantuan shift is credited to the modern alpha consumers, as they love to express with the greater level of intensity and the confidence to lead. They believe in equality, and the solution of the problem is not the government. They want to take power to change the world.

One reason could be the 90's nostalgia, the secret rave parties, and the disco clubs.

According to Pantone color authority "We typically think of wonderfully theatrical and sociable orange as linked to heat and warmth, however there is also the inevitable association of orange to the time of harvest and falling leaves which we associate with earthy warmth as well as the lighter and less intense apricot and peach tones whose message is one of soft warmth."
