Report Summary

“Across Europe, while each market has experienced the pressures of 2022 and early 2023 differently, the common factor has been a decline in consumer confidence taking its toll on demand. Consequently, in 2023, the European retail landscape has been defined by increasing value growth against a backdrop of decreasing volume sales. The overall inflationary pressures have eased slightly into Q2 2023. However, in many countries, inflation remains significantly and persistently high hindering optimism while adding further pressure to households and retail spending.”
