The overall Q2 result is positive – yet only slightly – noting a growth of +0,4%. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be enough to push up the YTD value, the figures still show a minor value decline of -0,7% for the measured Non Food panels, in comparison to the first semester of 2017.
Most panels are able to find good growth in Q2, especially CE (thanks to the World Cup and his positive impact on PTV/Flat sales) and Telecom. IT and SDA show a status quo versus Q2 of last year. MDA is the only panel loosing sales value.
