Economic confidence has plateaued end July since the initial uptick experienced when the country began to reopen during June

This latest wave of the B&A Consumer Confidence Barometer was conducted from 16th  – 29th  July 2020.

Amid a backdrop of businesses reopening, the latest wave of consumer confidence tracking suggests personal income concern is now less negative at -30. Concerns less pronounced in Dublin.

Overall consumer confidence shows little movement on the initial uptick experienced when the country began to reopen during June and now stands at –69% (-68% during June).

The latest figures also suggest that there has been little movement on attitudes towards the value of personal assets, saving and spending.

Undoubtedly difficult times lie ahead, and the Irish consumer will remain quite a nervous one for some time. 

All interviewing on this wave was conducted via B&A’s online barometer.
