Survey: French consumer sentiment during the coronavirus crisis

As containment measures have been lifted, French consumers’ optimism has returned to March levels, though spending intent is still negative.

One-third of French consumers continues to report income loss and reduced spending. However, COVID-19’s direct effects on consumers’ lives are starting to reduce. Forty percent of consumers have returned to some out-of-home activities and intend to increase local travel and socializing in the next two weeks. Consumers who are not yet engaging with out-of-home activities are waiting for the approval of medical authorities, and they are prioritizing masks and barriers when choosing where to shop in-store.

These exhibits are based on survey data collected in France from June 18–21, 2020. Check back for regular updates on French consumer sentiments, behaviors, income, spending, and expectations.
