Belgium Consumer Confidence  1985-2016 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Belgian consumer confidence increased to -7 in October 2016 compared to -13 in the previous month. The pick-up was almost exclusively attributable to the catching-up observed among the macroeconomic components. Fears of a rise in unemployment over the next twelve months have diminished considerably, after having reached their highest level since August 2014 in October following all the various corporate restructuring announcements. The pessimism among consumers surrounding future developments in the economic situation overall has also subsided. From a personal point of view, consumers are expecting a slight improvement in their financial situation and are planning to save less. Consumer Confidence in Belgium averaged -7.63 from 1985 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 16.00 in August of 2000 and a record low of -28.00 in January of 1985.
