A recession is coming, and consumer behavior is shifting in preparation for the downturn.
Prevedere’s economist team expects the economy may enter into a recessionary period soon and could extend through the second half of this year. Although the downturn may be relatively short-lived, consumers are already changing their habits in response.
Consumer behavior is leaning towards more sensitivity to prices. In addition, the economy may see the adoption of budget and price consciousness, leading to a trade-down effect across industries.
The report includes the following:
- Tight labor market
- End of COVID-era consumer benefits
- Post pandemic behaviors
- Three keys to forecasting in the second half of 2023
It will be critical for FP&A teams to have the right processes in place to monitor external indicators in real-time as new data is released, understand the impact these trends have on sales forecasts, and adjust planning accordingly.
