The KBC Bank consumer sentiment index in Ireland came in at 86.8 in October of 2021, little-changed from 86.4 in September, hovering just below a 2-year high of 87.2 reached in June, as respondents reported growing confidence about the economic recovery but lingering concerns about their personal finances. "The dominant mood appears to be one of continuing caution born out of uncertainty and experience rather than runaway confidence that would reflect a view that the worst is behind us," said KBC Ireland chief economist Austin Hughes.

Irish Consumer Sentiment Strengthens
The KBC Bank consumer sentiment index in Ireland rose to 86.5 in August 2021 from a three-month low of 84.9 a month earlier, reflecting further opening-up of the economy, with the general economic outlook subindex rising markedly. Also, the outlook for jobs improved, boosted by the promise of supportive fiscal measures announced in the Summer Economic Statement. However, consumers were still cautious about household finances and spending plans. "At current levels, the survey suggests consumers are gradual if unevenly putting the extreme worries of the past couple of years," the release said. "However, with the Delta variant... they appear relatively wary in their response to a generally improving situation."

Ireland Consumer Confidence
In Ireland, the Consumer Sentiment Index survey covers a minimum of 1,100 households across all regions of the country. The questionnaire assesses respondents’ perceptions on the general economy in the previous 12 months as well as expectations for next 12 months; perceptions of recent trends in unemployment and inflation; recent trends and likely future evolution in the household’s financial situation as well as savings and major purchases intentions. The Consumer Sentiment Index is calculated as the percentage of favourable replies minus the percentage of unfavourable replies, plus 100. The indicator varies on a scale of 0 to 200; a value of 0 indicates extreme lack of confidence, 100 neutrality and 200 extreme confidence.
