Nielsen Q2 consumer confidence report shows global decline

“Global consumer confidence declined one index point in the second quarter to a score of 96, as overall sentiment about job prospects and personal finances dropped two and one percentage point(s), respectively, from the first quarter. This near-baseline score, which has stayed relatively consistent for more than a year, reflects an overall stable outlook, but uneven performance at the country level increased within regions—especially in Latin America and the Middle East. Regionally, confidence continued to rise in Europe, increasing two points to 79—its highest score since 2010, as 65% of markets showed improvement from the first quarter. In Asia-Pacific, confidence held steady at 107, and it declined five points in North America (101), two points in the Middle East/ Africa (94) and three points in Latin America (83).” To read the report click here (VIEW LINK)
