Quarter By Numbers: Q1 2018
Global conditions continued to improve for consumers as the year started, with the Confidence Board reporting that confidence hit an all-time high in the first quarter. Consumer sentiment didn’t rise unilaterally, however, as several countries saw dips in consumer confidence, with the largest drops coming from emerging market economies.
From a global perspective, conditions and prospects for the remainder of the year appear largely positive. In the first quarter of the year, confidence grew across Western Europe, the economic recovery in Latin America looks promising in a number of key markets, dollar sales of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) in North America performed well, and population growth and growing disposable incomes across Asia-Pacific are having an effect well beyond the immediate region.
