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

The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator for Germany is set to rise to 11 in February of 2018 from 10.78 in a month earlier and above market consensus of 10.8. It was the highest reading since October 2001, due to rises in both economic and income expectations as well as propensity to buy. In January, economic expectations climbed to the highest level since February 2011 of 54.4, supported by strong job market. Income expectations increased for the second month in a row to 56.8, as high demand for workers feed the hope that there is likely to be a considerable increase in income. In addition, the propensity to buy went up by 3.3 points to 60.4, the highest level since May 2015. "Even if the signals for consumption are currently showing green, there are still certain risks. In particular, the US trade policy with its threatened protectionist trends and the sluggish progress made in the Brexit negotiations could depress the consumer climate as the year unfolds," GfK said in a statement. Consumer Confidence in Germany averaged 5.96 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.
