Despite being two points down, India still led global consumer confidence in the July-September quarter, market research company Nielsen said, issuing its quarterly consumer confidence index.
India topped the list with a score of 126 in the third quarter followed by Indonesia (125) and the Philippines (115), Nielsen said. This is the second straight quarter for India at the top, the insights and information company pointed out, after the country’s seven-point jump in the April-June quarter. Back then, India topped the list after five quarters with a score of 128.
In the latest survey, conducted online, over four in five (82 per cent) urban Indian respondents indicated the highest levels of optimism globally on job prospects in the next 12 months, followed by Indonesia and China, Nielsen said.
