The Q2 2017 report of the Dealerscope CE Retail Confidence Index showed the overall confidence level of CE retailers has fallen off over the past three months. As a result and using other data from the DS Index, Dealerscope has projected that confidence will continue to slip heading deeper into summer and ahead of the all-important final quarter of the year.
After the DS Index confidence score rose heading into April, it took a major downturn. By the end of Q2 2017, the DS Index fell off more than 15 points to reach an all time low. Average confidence from Q1 to Q2 also dropped, falling from 196.21 for Q1 to 189.94 during Q2.
