Consumer Confidence November 2019
October 30, 2019 08:50 WIB

In October 2019, Danareksa’s Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) fell further. The CCI declined from 98.9 to 97.7, its lowest level since August 2018. The two main components of the CCI both declined: the Present Situations Index (PSI) fell by 3.1% mom to 80.7 and the Expectations Index (EI) slipped by 0.2% mom to 110.4. Consumer assessments toward current national economic, local economic, and employment conditions all deteriorated. Consumers were also less upbeat on the outlook. Our survey reveals that the proportion of consumers claiming that current economic conditions were “good” dipped from 18.4 percent to 17.4 percent, while 43.6 percent of consumers said that economic conditions were “normal”. Looking ahead, 21.2 percent believe that the economic outlook is “good” or down from 21.3 percent in the previous survey.

Consumers are also less upbeat on the outlook for local economic conditions and family incomes over the next 6 months. Some 19.5 percent of consumers believe that the local economic outlook is “good” (stable from the Sept survey), while 75.1 percent (compared to 76.3 percent in the Sept survey) believe that the outlook is “normal”. Furthermore, fewer consumers expect family incomes to improve over the next six months (20.0 percent compared to 20.6 percent in the previous survey).

Consumer confidence weakened in urban areas but rebounded in rural areas. For urban consumers, the CCI dipped 2.6% mom to 97.7 while for rural consumers the CCI rose 2.0% mom to 97.5. By province, the CCI fell in four of them: Jakarta (-5.5% to 103.2), West Java (-1.2% to 92.5), East Java (-2.6% to 108.2), and South Sulawesi (-10.8% to 77.6). By contrast, the CCI increased in North Sumatera (+7.9% to 93.0) and Central Java (+3.1% to 113.3).

By income level, the CCI declined in all groups. The CCI for mid-income consumers (between IDR 1.5 mn-3.0 mn/month) fell to 92.7 (-1.3% mom) and for low-income consumers (below IDR 1.5 mn/month) the CCI dipped 3.4% mom to 86.1. Moreover, the CCI for high-income consumers (above IDR 3.0 mn/month) edged down by 1.8 percent to 105.0. 

For October 2019, consumers expressed more concerns on rising foodstuff prices (62.9% vs 43.8% in the previous survey) and job scarcity (39.8% vs 38.8% previously). In addition, consumers were more worried by natural disasters (up to 16.8%), particularly droughts and potential crop failure. They also pointed out the problem of LPG scarcity and higher prices of LPG as factors that worsened economic conditions in some regions (up to 14.9 percent). Some 78.6 percent of consumers in South Sulawesi mentioned LPG scarcity and prices as a concern.

Most consumers expect higher inflationary pressures over the next 6 months (the index measuring sentiment toward general prices rose by 0.6% to 176.3). At the same time, consumers also believe that interest rates will decline (this index dipped 2.8% to 115.6). However, consumers in the main cities are more positive on the rupiah’s outlook since this index strengthened 1.1% to 71.2.

Consumer buying plans remain solid since the buying intentions index rose further to 205.6 (+15.2% yoy). Among the ten categories of goods tracked by our survey, consumer purchasing plans rose significantly in seven of them (cars, motorcycles, bicycles, houses, land, home appliances and audio visual electronics). Expectations of lower interest rates going forward bolstered consumer buying plans.

The Consumer Confidence in the Government Index (CCGI) fell further by 0.9% mom to 114.0 after posting a 1.8% fall in the previous month. Three of the CCGI components recorded declines. Consumers expressed less confidence in the government’s ability to stabilize general prices (-1.4% mom to 106.8), to ensure a safe and orderly environment (-3.1% mom to 114.8), and to enforce the rule of law (-3.8% mom to 112.7). Meanwhile, consumer confidence toward the government’s ability to spur economic growth (+1.4% mom to 112.1) and to provide and maintain public infrastructure (+2.5% mom to 123.9) posted gains.

Consumer Confidence Agustus 2019
July 31, 2019 14:12 WIB

Danareksa’s Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) rose to 102.0 in July 2019 from 100.7 in June. Both indicators – i.e. the Present Situations Index (PSI) and the Expectations Index (EI) - increased by 2.8% mom and 0.5% mom to 87.0 and 113.2, respectively. Consumers gave increasingly positive assessments toward current economic conditions and the job market. The proportion of consumers claiming that current economic conditions were “good” increased from 22.0 percent to 23.4 percent. In addition, consumers were more upbeat on the outlook for local business conditions and their family incomes over the next 6 months. The percentage of consumers expecting that their family incomes will improve over the next six months increased from 21.4 percent to 23.9 percent.

The CCI for urban consumers rose by 2.9% mom to 103.7, while the CCI for rural areas slipped to 98.0 (-2.5% mom). By province, the CCI increased in three of them: Jakarta (+2.5% mom to 117.3), North Sumatera (+12.8% mom to 96.1), and South Sulawesi (+4.9% mom to 84.6). By contrast, the CCI fell in West Java (-0.7%), Central Java (-4.6%), and East Java (-2.5%) to 101.3, 110.9, and 107.0, respectively.

By income level, the CCI for mid-income consumers (between IDR 1.5 mn-3.0 mn/month) rose to 98.5 (+2.9% mom) and for high-income consumers (above IDR 3.0 mn/month) the CCI climbed to 109.5 (+0.8% mom). By contrast, the CCI for low-income consumers (below IDR 1.5 mn/month) fell by 3.5 percent to 90.3. Lower CCI for low-income consumers was related to falling CCI for rural areas. However since the CCI readings stayed above their 12-month averages, this reflects relatively strong consumer confidence, suggesting there will not be any significant pullback in consumer spending in the months ahead.

Our survey shows that 69.5 percent of consumers worry about higher foodstuff prices (up from 65.8% in the previous month) as well as job scarcity (up to 42.3% from 33.9% in the previous survey). Notably, there have been recent increases in the prices of rice, chilis, and vegetables in July following the Idul Fitri festivities. However, consumer concerns on potential natural disasters dropped from 6.8 percent to 4.6 percent. Since the new school year has begun, 0.12 percent of consumers also cited rising education costs as a concern.

Most consumers expect milder inflationary pressures and lower interest rates over the next 6 months. The index measuring consumer sentiment toward general prices and interest rates fell by 1.0% and 0.2% to 173.1 and 121.5. At the same time, consumers in the main cities are pessimistic on the outlook for the rupiah (this index dipped 1.0% to 66.0).

The Buying Intentions Index gained traction in July. It rose to 192.2 (+1.8% mom), suggesting that buying intentions are solid. This also indicating that consumers more confident to long term economic outlook. Of the ten categories of goods tracked by our survey, buying intentions rose in five of them (cars, motorcycles, bicycles, land, and houses). Stable consumer purchasing intentions for durable goods over the next six months should be maintained since the index is significantly higher on an annual basis (+14.1% yoy).

Inline with the increase in the CCI, the Consumer Confidence in the Government Index (CCGI) rose 4.4% mom to 116.4, following a 0.5% increase in the previous month. All the CCGI components posted monthly increases, indicating that consumers are still generally convinced in the government’s ability to carry out its duties. Consumers have greater confidence in the government’s ability to spur economic growth (+5.8% mom to 115.7), provide and maintain public infrastructure (+1.2% mom to 121.9), stabilize general prices (+4.8% mom to 105.8), ensure a safe and orderly environment (+3.3% mom to 118.6) and enforce the rule of law (+7.3% mom to 120.1).

July 31, 2019 14:11 WIB

The Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) fell for the second straight month in June 2019 to 100.7 from 103.1 in the previous month. The Present Situations Index (PSI) declined more sharply by 4.5% to 84.7, while the Expectations Index (EI) slipped 1.1% to 112.6. Consumers gave more negative assessments toward current economic and employment conditions. In turn, they are less upbeat on the outlook for local business conditions and their family incomes over the next 6 months.

The CCI for urban areas slipped to 100.8 (-5.3% mom), while the CCI for rural areas rose 5.8% mom to 100.5. By province, the CCI fell in three of them: Jakarta (-3.8% mom to 114.4), North Sumatera (-16.1% mom to 85.2), and South Sulawesi (-6.0% mom to 80.7). By contrast, the CCI was up in West Java (+6.4%), Central Java (+2.2%), and East Java (+1.7%) to 102.0, 116.2, and 109.7, respectively.

By income level, the CCI for mid-income consumers (between IDR 1.5 mn-3.0 mn/month) fell to 95.7 (-2.8% mom) and for high-income consumers (above IDR 3.0 mn/month) the CCI declined to 108.6 (-3.8% mom). By contrast, the CCI for low-income consumers (below IDR 1.5 mn/month) rose further by 4.4 percent to 93.6. Since the CCI readings are above their 12-month averages, this reflects relatively strong consumer confidence, suggesting there will not be any significant pullback in consumer spending (particularly for low-income consumers) in the months ahead.

Consumers mentioned several factors that dampened local economic conditions. Some 65.8 percent of them are concerned by higher foodstuff prices (unchanged from 65.8% in the earlier survey), and job scarcity (up to 33.9% from 32.9% in the previous survey). The recent floods in North Sumatera and Sulawesi also raised concerns over potential natural disasters (6.8 percent of consumers noted this as a worry vs. 5.4% in the previous survey). 

Most consumers foresee milder inflationary pressures over the next 6 months (the index measuring consumer sentiment toward general prices fell 1.9% to 174.8).  In regard to interest rates, consumers believe that interest rates will remain high over the next six months (this index rose 2.5% to 121.7). At the same time, consumers in the main cities are pessimistic on the outlook for the rupiah (this index slumped by 6.3% to 66.7).

The Buying Intentions Index fell on a monthly basis (-1.3% mom to 187.7) in the June survey. Consumers may postpone planned purchases of several types of durable goods following the Idul Fitri festivities and ahead of the new school year. Of the ten categories of goods tracked by our survey, buying intentions dropped sharply in three of them (houses, home appliances, and gold-jewelry). Nonetheless, the Buying Intentions Index still posted higher annual growth (+11.8% yoy), indicating stable consumer purchasing intentions for durable goods over the next six months. 

The Consumer Confidence in the Government Index (CCGI) rose 0.5% mom to 111.5, following a 1.4% increase in the previous month. Three components of the CCGI posted a monthly increase. In particular, consumers have greater confidence in the government’s ability to spur economic growth (+0.1% mom to 109.4), provide and maintain public infrastructure (+0.4% mom to 120.5), and stabilize general prices (+4.3% mom to 101.0). The components of the CCGI to decline were the ones measuring sentiment toward the government’s ability to ensure a safe and orderly environment (-0.8% mom to 114.8) and enforce the rule of law (-1.0% mom to 111.9).
