Survey: New Zealand consumer sentiment during the coronavirus crisis

New Zealand consumers are quite optimistic about the overall future, as they have effectively combatted the virus.

In New Zealand, the prevailing sentiment is a combination of optimism and uncertainty. Almost a third of the consumers are quite optimistic about the economic recovery, but many are worried about the impact on their personal economic situation and health of their families. Spending is still depressed across discretionary categories (online and in-store) as New Zealanders are emerging from the lockdown.

These exhibits are based on survey data collected in New Zealand from June 10–12, 2020. Check back for regular updates on New Zealand consumer sentiments, behaviors, income, spending, and expectations.
