Brazil Consumer Confidence March 2021


Brazil: Consumer confidence records worst reading in ten months in March

March 23, 2021

The seasonally-adjusted consumer confidence index published by the Getulio Vargas Foundation fell to 68.2 in March from February's 78.0, marking the worst reading since May 2020. As a result, the index remained entrenched below the 100-point threshold, separating pessimism from optimism among consumers.

March’s downturn chiefly came on the back of a deterioration in consumers’ assessments of the future economic situation.

LatinFocus panelists project private consumption to grow 3.2% in 2021, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2022, panelists see private consumption increasing 2.6%.
