Tracking consumer behavior in the time of COVID-19

Since March 2020, dentsu has fielded a monthly US consumer survey to better understand what consumers continue to value and de-prioritize as the coronavirus crisis evolves. Heading into the third year of the pandemic, it’s clear our lives haven’t changed – they are changing, and will continue to do so. 

As of January 2022, our survey finds that consumers are fatigued by constant health risks and the evolution of new variants. Financial concerns and inflation are driving many consumers to be more budget conscious than normal and cuts to essential and discretionary spend are expected.
