South Africa Consumer & Retail Q1 2018

South Africa Consumer & Retail Q1 2018

BMI View: The South African consumer outlook will begin to show signs of improvement in 2018, with a pickup in spending compared to 2016 and 2017, but growth will still be weak. Consumer confidence is still in a slump, due to high unemployment and low growth from the overall economy. A boost to the minimum wage offers an upside to our spending forecast in 2018, but this will likely be a short-term improvement, with fundamental challenges still limiting growth.
