McKinsey European consumer sentiment survey: How current events in Europe are shaping consumer behavior

Across the continent, the pattern holds: Europeans are anxious about the state of their countries’ economies, and worried about the future. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and price inflation overshadow other concerns, and consumer anxieties in turn are impacting confidence in household finances and national economies, especially among vulnerable populations.

Worried about spending more on food, transport and fuel, consumers report cutting back on less essential items. Most say they’ve changed their shopping behaviors in recent months, trading down to more affordable brands and retailers. With no relief clearly in sight, 2022 continues to prove a challenging year for the continental consumer.

McKinsey European consumer sentiment survey: How current events in Europe are shaping consumer behavior

  1. 1. McKinsey & Company 1 The invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has had deep human, as well as social and economic impact, across countries and sectors. The implications of the invasion of Ukraine are also rapidly evolving and inherently uncertain. As a result, this document and the data and analysis it sets out should be treated as a best-efforts perspective at a specific point of time, which seeks to help inform discussion and decisions taken by leaders of relevant organizations. The document does not set out economic or geopolitical forecasts and should not be treated as doing so. It also does not provide legal analysis, including but not limited to legal advice on sanctions or export control issues.
  2. 2. McKinsey & Company 2 Three emerging consumer themes in April 2022 New sources of concern and tumbling confidence in overall economy Sharply rising prices on essentials with noticeable consequences on spend Noticeable activity, demand and channel and brand shifts in search for value for money Source: McKinsey & Company Europe Consumer Pulse Survey, 4/12–4/18/2022, n = 5,075 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK), sampled to match European general population 18+ years 1 2 3 How do consumers feel? What do consumer observe? How are consumers reacting? Despite the pandemic’s continuing grip on societies in Europe, rising prices and invasion of Ukraine have now by far overtaken COVID-19 as top concerns for consumers Rising prices are particularly worrying for low- income consumers and millennials Pessimism about economic recovery has significantly increased in the last months, climbing to higher levels than during COVID-19 lockdown periods and more than doubling when compared with October 2021 A vast majority of respondents across countries has observed price increases More than 90% perceive a high increase in grocery prices Consumer tangibly see and feel sharply increasing prices on food, petrol and other essentials, and they expects prices to increase even further. As a consequence, consumers have started to cut back on spend in other (discretionary) categories and are expecting to continue to do so going forward 68% of consumers have changed shopping behavior in response to concerns and pressures faced Downtrading is widespread, and more than half of those having changed shopping behavior are testing private labels Consumers are increasing purchases in discounters, for which prices/promotions and value for money are major drivers Less than half of consumers have returned to pre-COVID-19 out-of-home routine activities

What do consumer observe? How are consumers reacting? Despite the pandemic’s continuing grip on societies in Europe, rising prices and invasion of Ukraine have now by far overtaken COVID-19 as top concerns for consumers Rising prices are particularly worrying for low- income consumers and millennials Pessimism about economic recovery has significantly increased in the last months, climbing to higher levels than during COVID-19 lockdown periods and more than doubling when compared with October 2021 A vast majority of respondents across countries has observed price increases More than 90% perceive a high increase in grocery prices Consumer tangibly see and feel sharply increasing prices on food, petrol and other essentials, and they expects prices to increase even further. As a consequence, consumers have started to cut back on spend in other (discretionary) categories and are expecting to continue to do so going forward 68% of consumers have changed shopping behavior in response to concerns and pressures faced Downtrading is widespread, and more than half of those having changed shopping behavior are testing private labels Consumers are increasing purchases in discounters, for which prices/promotions and value for money are major drivers Less than half of consumers have returned to pre-COVID-19 out-of-home routine activities
