Consumer Market Monitor

The Consumer Market Monitor is a publication provided by the Marketing Institute of Ireland in collaboration with UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.

It is designed to track key indicators of confidence and activity in the Irish consumer market as a resource for marketers and the wider business community. The consumer market accounts for over 60% of GNP so it is an important indicator of the health of the economy.

It relies on a model of consumer behaviour which sees economic variables such as income levels, taxes, interest rates and exchange rates influencing consumer confidence which, in turn, influences consumer behaviour including spending, saving and borrowing.

It is based on data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the Central Bank, the European Commission, and other secondary sources. The added value rests in the fact that the information is brought together in a single location and presented in a way that is easy to use for market analysis and sales planning. The accompanying editorial also highlights important trends and linkages that point to emerging opportunities and threats.

It is published on the Marketing Institute website and UCD Smurfit School website and is updated every quarter.
