Barclays Consumer Spend Index

Established in 2014, the Barclays Consumer Spend Index combines hundreds of millions of customer transactions with consumer research to provide an in-depth view of UK spending.

What is the Barclays Consumer Spend Index?

Barclays has been publishing regular, in-depth analysis of UK consumer spending trends since 2014.

Across our card issuing and payments processing businesses, we see nearly half of the nation’s credit and debit card transactions, which provides a unique view of UK consumer spending.

Insights are combined with consumer sentiment research to capture the nation’s confidence in the strength of UK, European and global economies, alongside the health of personal and household finances.

Our reports are some of the most robust, reliable and up-to-date sources of consumer spending data available.
