Consumers Confidence in Economy And Technology Both Fall in July


Consumer confidence in the overall economy and in technology both slipped in July, according to the latest CEA Indexes from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).

The CEA Index of Consumer Expectations (ICE), which measures consumer expectations about the broader economy, fell one point this month to 159.1.

"Consumer sentiment deteriorated further this month as the inability of Congress to raise the debt ceiling heightens consumer uncertainty," said Shawn DuBravac, CEA?s chief economist and director of research. "Given the recent soft patch in the economy, consumers remain jittery. There are some signs, however, that the sentiment around employment and the labor market generally is improving slowly."

Consumer expectations regarding their technology spending are also slightly down in July. The CEA Index of Consumer Technology Expectations (ICTE) fell about 2.5 points this month to 79.8. The ICTE measures consumer expectations about technology spending.

"Despite a slight dip in consumer sentiment around technology spending, CEA data shows consumer have continued to expand their spending on technologies over the last several months," DuBravac said.

The CEA Indexes comprise the ICE and ICTE, both of which are updated on a monthly basis through consumer surveys.
