Designed to track key indicators of confidence and activity in the Irish consumer market
as a resource for marketers and the wider business community.
It starts by reviewing consumer confidence which has a key influence on the level of
spending in the market. It then reviews consumer expectations with regard to future
purchases of big ticket items including houses, cars and home improvements. This is
followed by a review of actual spending, saving, and borrowing of various types. It then
provides information on retail spending in total and for several major product categories.
