The PwC consumer confidence index is at its highest level since the index started in 2008. The first quarter of 2021 marks the first time the index has been in positive territory since pre-pandemic.

The index stands at +8, higher than the previous record of +5 in December 2015, and 34 points higher than at the start of the pandemic.
