Germany GfK Consumer Climate  2001-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator for Germany fell unexpectedly for the second month in a row to 10.5 going into September 2018 from 10.6 a month earlier while markets had forecast an unchanged figure of 10.6. It is the weakest reading since June 2017, as the gauge measuring income expectations dropped by 4.9 points to 52.6 probably due to the recent rise in energy prices, which has fueled inflation to above 2 percent. Also, the sub-index assessing consumers' propensity to buy declined by 1.0 point to 55.2, as there was a bit regression toward consumer mood, while fears of job losses among employees remained low. Meanwhile, expectations regarding general economic situation in the next 12 months increased noticeably by 6.5 points to 22.2, supported by a solid domestic economy and despite trade conflicts with the US. Consumer Confidence in Germany averaged 6.11 Index Points from 2001 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 16.80 Index Points in March of 2001 and a record low of -3.50 Index Points in March of 2003.
