Credit Suisse Emerging Consumer Survey 2017

Consumer sentiment has improved from a year ago across eight major emerging markets with three Asian countries – India, Indonesia and China - topping the scorecard in our seventh edition of the CSRI Emerging Consumer Survey. Pressure has also eased on consumers in those countries with currencies sensitive to commodity prices but, in contrast, sentiment in Turkey and Mexico has declined on concerns surrounding geo-political developments.

As the emerging middle class continues to grow, we highlight a series of key themes including rising connectivity within e-commerce, the growth of domestic brands and an added new theme of consumers becoming more “conscious” and increasingly adopting a healthier lifestyle.
