Consumer Sentiment Toward Technology Spending Jumps to Highest Point for October Since 2007, According to CEA Indexes
Consumer confidence toward technology spending jumped to the highest level for the month of October since 2007, while sentiment toward the overall economy increased two points in October, according to the latest figures released today by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®.
"Consumer interest in tech has moved up decidedly heading into the holiday season," said Shawn DuBravac, CEA's chief economist and senior director of research. "Exciting product announcements coupled with early retailer promotions and advertisements are likely behind the jump in sentiment toward tech spending this month."
Total retail sales for the November through December holiday sales period are expected to increase by 4.0 percent over last year, reaching $738 billion in total revenue, according to CEA's 2013 Holiday Retail Sales Forecast report. CEA's full 2013 holiday outlook will be released later today at CEA's Industry Forum in Los Angeles.
