Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Thomas Slide, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
It was a remarkably good Christmas given that all the economic indicators suggested that consumers should be becoming more cautious and because the comparison was with a retail boom in the final quarter of 2016. In the event, people were prepared to borrow to cover the fact that real incomes have been falling. Mintel's own consumer confidence indicators show that consumers are not concerned about their financial situation, so 2018 should start well, even if on balance there are good reasons to be cautious for the rest of the year.
