In June, household consumption expenditure on goods exceeded its February level (+2.3%) but decreased sharply over the second quarter (–7.1%)Household consumption expenditure on goods - June 2020

In June 2020, household consumption expenditure on goods exceeded its February level (+2.3% in volume* compared to February) after declining strongly during the lockdown period. This increase was mainly driven by manufactured good consumption (+5.8% compared to February). However, energy spending remained lower than in February (–1.8%). Food consumption, after going beyond its February level during the lockdown, almost returns to it in June (+0.2%).

Over the whole second quarter of 2020, household consumption on goods fell sharply (–7.1% after –6.8% in the first quarter).

Warning:

In light of the lockdown of the French population that was set up between mid-March and mid-May, methodological adjustments have been decided to overcome the lack of certain indicators and estimate as well as possible the decrease in consumption. These adjustments are detailed in the methodology note related to the publication of the first estimate of the Quarterly Accounts of the second quarter. In this context, estimates could be more revised than usual in further publications. Furthermore, the large month-to-month changes, both upwards and downwards, are difficult to interpret. The evolution rates commented in this publication therefore refer to February, the last complete month before the lockdown, in order to better estimate the difference with the pre-lockdown level of consumer spending.

In June 2020, household consumption expenditure on goods exceeded its February level (+2.3% in volume* compared to February) after declining strongly during the lockdown period. This increase was mainly driven by manufactured good consumption (+5.8% compared to February). However, energy spending remained lower than in February (–1.8%). Food consumption, after going beyond its February level during the lockdown, almost returns to it in June (+0.2%).

Over the whole second quarter of 2020, household consumption on goods fell sharply (–7.1% after –6.8% in the first quarter).

  • Source: INSEE

Manufactured goods: +5.8% compared to February, –12.0% over the quarter

Manufactured good consumption exceeded in June its February level, mainly due to durable good purchases (+7.3% compared to February), but also to other manufactured good spending (+5.7%) and textile-clothing consumption (+1.8%).

Over the second quarter, manufactured good consumption fell again (–12.0% after –16.0% in the first quarter).

Durables: +7.3% compared to February, –16.2% over the quarter

In June, durable good spending rose sharply, exceeding its February level (+7.3%). In particular, the consumption of transport equipment increased for the second consecutive month, driven in particular by new vehicle purchases. In addition, housing equipment consumption was also very dynamic (+21.6% compared to February).

Over the second quarter, durable goods purchases fell sharply (–16.2%, after –18.2% in the first quarter).

Textile-clothing: +1.8% compared to February, –9.4% over the quarter

Textile-clothing spending returned to its pre-lockdown level (+1.8% compared to February). Shoe purchases were particularly dynamic for the second consecutive month. In addition, the purchases of masks and fabrics used to make them reinforced household consumption.

Over the second quarter, textile-clothing consumption fell sharply (–9.4% after –19.4% in the first quarter).

Other engineered goods: +5.7% compared to February, –7.0% over the quarter

In June, the consumption of "other manufactured goods" exceeded its February level (+5.7%), driven by the recovery of perfume sales.

Over the second quarter, spending on "other manufactured goods" fell sharply (–7.0% after –10.1% in the first quarter).

April and May 2020 estimates are revised upwards

Estimates of household consumption expenditure on goods in April and May 2020 were revised upwards compared to February: –31.7% instead of –32.0% in April and –6.2% instead of –7.2% in May. Since the previous publication, new information has been integrated and the seasonal adjustment coefficients have been updated, excluding April to June from the estimation period.

For more information

*Volumes are measured at chain-link previous year prices (2014 euro billions) and all figures are trading-day and seasonally adjusted.

Scope and definition - Consumption expenditure on goods is compliant with the national-accounts definition (NAF Rev. 2). In 2010, they accounted for half of total households’ consumption expenditure. They are divided into three main items:

Food: products of agriculture, forestry and fishing (AZ), food, drinks and tobacco (C1)

Energy: mining products, as well as water, gas, electricity and air conditioning, sanitation and waste management (DE), and refined and coked products (C2).

Engineered goods: computers, electronic, electrical and optical goods (C3), transport equipment (C4), textiles and clothing, products made of leather, wood, paper, metals, plastic, rubber, chemicals, minerals, furniture, hardware, drugs (C5). Within this heading are distinguished “durable” goods which include transport equipment, household durables (furniture, household appliances, etc.) and other durable goods (jewelry, watches, glasses, medical devices, etc.).

The manufactured goods correspond to all the products C1, C2, C3, C4, C5.
