Global Consumer Trends: The Latest on Worldwide Consumer Confidence and Spending Patterns and What This Means for Business

OCTOBER 15, 2019


At a time of persistent trade tensions, constantly evolving Brexit questions, and other domestic and international challenges, how do consumers feel and behave economically and what are their concerns—from economic to political to personal ones?

In this webcast, we will share insights from our latest Global Consumer Confidence Survey, conducted in collaboration with Nielsen, from the third quarter of 2019. It is based on responses by 32,000 customers in 64 markets throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.

Join our expert panel to:

  • Learn how consumers across the world feel about their country’s job market outlook, their personal finances, and about spending money;
  • Understand on what categories they spend discretionary income, where they are cutting back,  and what their primary concerns are;
  • What may drive these developments—unresolved tariff questions, job market changes, product innovations or lack thereof—and what this all means for companies and policy makers as they plan for 2020.  

Who Should Attend: Anyone with an interest in the global economy, including executives working in or with consumer-related businesses
