Consumer sentiment within the EU 28 has continued its upward trend in the third quarter of this year, finishing on 20.9 points. This is up from 19.1 points at the end of Q2 and now stands at a level not seen since the end of 2007.

Rolf Bürkl, GfK’s consumer expert, comments, "Private consumption has proved a major pillar for the EU economy during the last quarter with several countries either improving or holding steady on the ‘propensity to buy’ measure. This has combated the more mixed results seen in individual countries within the other measures, where economic expectation has dropped in France, Germany and Portugal, and income expectation has fallen in France, Austria and Germany, compared to the second quarter of 2017."
