South Africa Consumer Confidence  1982-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The FNB/BER Consumer Confidence Index in South Africa jumped to 26 in the first quarter of 2018 from -8 in the last three months of 2017. It is the highest reading on record after political and economic developments including the change in the country’s leadership made consumers more optimistic and more willing to spend. However, there is a risk that the consumer confidence overshot during the first quarter on the back of the positive sentiment, implying that there could be a negative correction during the second quarter. Consumer Confidence in South Africa averaged 1.28 Index Points from 1982 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 26 Index Points in the first quarter of 2018 and a record low of -33 Index Points in the second quarter of 1985.
