South Africa Consumer Confidence  1982-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The FNB/BER consumer confidence index in South Africa dropped to -9 in the second quarter of 2017 from -5 in the previous quarter, highlighting households' concerns about weak outlook of the economy. "Despite the recent deceleration in food inflation, food prices remain very high and will continue to dampen the real purchasing power of consumers, especially for low income households. Per capita real disposable income is set to deteriorate further on the back of exceedingly poor economic growth, little to no job creation, and substantial increases in personal income taxes for middle and high-income earners", said FNB senior analyst, Jason Muscat. Consumer Confidence in South Africa averaged 1.29 from 1982 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 23 in the first quarter of 2007 and a record low of -33 in the second quarter of 1985.
