Survey: French consumer sentiment during the coronavirus crisis

Consumers in France remain concerned about the effect of COVID-19 on the economy, spending, and routines.

French consumers are again becoming increasingly pessimistic about economic recovery. Consumers’ spending intentions remain below pre-COVID-19 levels, but have increased compared to March. As spending shifts to online, consumers are adopting new shopping behaviors and digital services, and they intend to continue after COVID-19 subsides. Driven by convenience and value, consumers are trying out new retailers and brands. Half of French consumers say that they are not engaging in normal out-of-home activities, and but they are also eager to return to indoor dining and getting together with friends and family.

These exhibits are based on survey data collected in France from Sept 24–27, 2020. Check back for regular updates on French consumer sentiments, behaviors, income, spending, and expectations.
