Although individual consumption accounts for approximately 60% of GDP,
changes in our daily consumption activities,
such as increases of e-commerce and service consumption,
have made trends more difficult to detect,
and marketing and policy-making difficult.
JCB Consumption NOW can solve these problems.
We offer you an innovative barometer for identifying a diverse range of consumption trends.
Our indexes are developed using information from actual credit card payments, allowing consumption trends to be traced like never before - by both industry and by forms of sales.
We distribute in only 2 weeks after collectting our data, phenomenally improving the responsiveness of consumption indexes, compared to other survey-based statistics.
JCB Consumption NOW shows a more specifically classified consumption trend (classified by residence area, age and gender) than before through segmenting the sales data.
