French Household Consumption Rises Less than Expected
France's household consumption expenditure on goods increased by 0.3 percent from a month earlier in June 2021, easing sharply from an upwardly revised 10.6 percent jump in May and far below market expectations of a 1.4 percent growth.

French Household Consumption Rebounds Sharply
France's household consumption expenditure on goods surged by 10.4 percent from a month earlier in May 2021, reversing an upwardly revised 8.7 percent plunge in April and easily beating market expectations of a 7.5 percent growth. It was the largest increase in consumer spending since June 2020, following the easing of coronavirus restrictions. This rebound was mainly driven by the manufactured goods purchases (26.0 percent), with the reopening of all stores on May 19th, and to a lesser extent by spending on energy (2.6 percent), with the end of travel restrictions in early May. Food consumption was stable.

3rd Lockdown Pushes French Household Consumption Down
Household spending in France sank 8.3 percent month-over-month in April of 2021, the 4th consecutive decline, as the third lockdown was implemented in the country from April 3rd 2021. Main decreases were seen for manufactured goods purchases (–18.9 percent). Energy expenditure fell only slightly (–0.6 percent) as did food consumption (–0.2 percent). Spending is thus 9.5 percent below its average level in Q4 2019. This decline in consumption is, however, less severe than those observed during the first lockdown in April 2020 (-31.4 percent) or during the second lockdown in November 2020 (-13.6 percent).

French Household Consumption Falls Unexpectedly
Household consumption expenditure on goods in France dropped 1.1 percent from a month earlier in March 2021, following a 0.3 percent advance in February and missing market expectations of 0.4 percent growth. There was a sharp drop in manufactured goods purchases, due to the implementation of lockdown measures and closures of "non-essential" stores in 19 departments and the aftershock of the postponement of February sales. Conversely, energy spending bounced back as did food consumption. Over the first quarter of 2021, household consumption on goods rose 1.2 percent, recovering from a 4.1 percent slump in the previous period and remaining 1.5 percent below to its fourth quarter 2019 level.
