Ireland Consumer Confidence  1996-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The KBC Bank Ireland/ESRI consumer sentiment index dropped to 102.4 in August of 2018 from 107.6 in the previous month. There was a deterioration in all five main components of the survey: personal financial situation 12 months ago (107.5 vs 110.8 in July); personal financial situation 12 months ahead (115.6 vs 121.4); general economic outlook (64.2 vs 70.6); outlook for unemployment (90.4 vs 91.6); and major purchases (136.1 vs 143.7). "The pull-back in Irish consumer sentiment in August is partly a reaction to the end of summer sales and the onset of various financial commitments ranging from back to school spending to higher autumn energy bills. More fundamentally, it also reflects increasing nervousness about uncertain global economic prospects as reflected in weaker confidence readings in the US and Euro area last month", said KBC chief economist Austin Hughes. Consumer Confidence in Ireland averaged 87.97 Index Points from 1996 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 130.90 Index Points in January of 2000 and a record low of 39.60 Index Points in July of 2008.
