The Dealerscope CE Retail Confidence Index is a proprietary measure of retailer confidence in the consumer electronics industry. The index is derived by surveying the Dealerscope CE retailer panel on a monthly basis as to their confidence in reaching their sales goals in the upcoming month. The survey asks respondents to indicate their sales confidence across product types (e.g. TV vs. video game consoles etc), confidence in their ability to drive both digital and foot traffic, and more. The responses are then plugged into a proprietary scoring algorithm which weights each factor based on market significance and outputs an overall confidence score. The DS Index is sponsored by Petra.
