The GfK Consumer Climate Indicator in Germany rose to -37.8 heading into January of 2023 from a marginally revised -40.1 in December, compared with market expectations of -38.0. The latest reading marked the third straight month of improvement in sentiment amid government energy measures. Both income expectations (-43.4 vs -54.3) and economic conditions (-10.3 vs -17.9) maintained their upward trajectory. Also, the gauge for the willingness to buy was less negative (-16.3 vs -18.6), with consumers continuing to put aside money in anticipation of higher heating bills in spring 2023. The index hit its record low of -42.8 in October. “The measures taken by the federal government to mitigate skyrocketing energy costs are apparently having an effect,” said Rolf Bürkl, GfK consumer expert. “However, it is still too soon to give the all-clear. The recovery of the consumer sentiment, as we are currently experiencing, is still on shaky ground.
