Household consumption of goods in France edged down by 0.4 percent month-over-month earlier in October 2021, following a revised 0.2 percent gain in September and came below market expectations of a flat reading. The latest reading mostly reflects a sharp fall in consumption of manufactured goods (-1.8 percent vs -1.9 percent in September), as durable goods consumption contracted (-2.7 percent vs 1.6 percent) due to a double-whammy of fewer car and housing equipment purchases. Still, losses were limited by the recoveries of food (0.7 percent vs 1-.5 percent) and energy consumptions (1.0 percent vs -0.3 percent). source: INSEE, France

Meanwhile, energy consumption was virtually stable (-0.1 percent vs 0.3 percent) and purchases of manufactured goods bounced back (0.8 percent vs -1.0 percent), boosted by textile-clothing (3.4 percent) and household durable goods (0.6 percent).

French Household Consumption Rebounds Stronger than Expected
Household consumption in France rose by 1.0 percent in August over the previous month, rebounding from a 2.4 percent drop in July and beating market expectations of a 0.1 percent gain. Main upward pressure came from a rebound in food consumption (3.1 percent vs -3.3 percent in July), despite a decrease in tobacco consumption; and from energy consumption (0.6 percent vs 0.7 percent), notably from purchases of fuel, which has exceeded pre-pandemic levels in July. On the other hand, consumption of manufactured goods continued to decline, although at a slower pace (-0.6 percent vs -2.8 percent), weighed down by textile-clothing (-1.5 percent vs -7.9 percent), other manufactured products (-0.7 percent, the same as in July), and durable articles (-0.2 percent vs -1.9 percent).
