Emerging Consumer Survey 2019

The ninth edition of the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Emerging Consumer Survey examines eight major emerging economies with Thailand added as a new market replacing South Africa. The report provides unique bottom-up insights into specific end-markets, products and brand preferences, alongside overall barometers of confidence. With Asia at the center of the emerging consumer theme, India still tops our "scorecard" retaining a bright structural outlook, whereas global political tensions appear to be weighing on Chinese consumer behavior. Latin America's largest economies Brazil and Mexico show a newfound optimism among consumers in the aftermath of political ruptures whilst the continuing economic fallout from weak currencies and political risks in Russia and Turkey have led to reduced consumer confidence.
