Predictions on Consumer Behavior

The downgrades from the economists are a message which conveys that the economy should not be taken for granted. Economists have conveyed that the relaxations of the restrictions across the country will analyze the strength of the economy to rebound and also the willingness to spend from the consumers will also act as a major key.

However, it is noted that even though the cases have decreased and the lockdown will be lifted in some parts of the country during the month of June but the consumers are considered to not spend so freely. This is due to the economic uncertainties and with the unemployment rates in the country are at their highest level.

Predictions of Economic growth after the 3rd wave

The Reserve Bank of India has conveyed that the biggest hit of the second wave of the pandemic is the loss of mobility, employment and the purchasing power of the individual. The Central Bank has been trying to inject liquidity into the system and has kept the monetary policy loose.

The slow pace of vaccines and the lifting of lockdowns are going to weigh the recovery of the Indian economy. However, if the country is hit by a 3rd wave as mentioned by certain economists, it would increase the economic costs and drag down the economic growth to around 7%.

Conclusion

The growth of the Indian economy depends mainly on the consumers spending and the increase in the employment opportunities. It also depends on the vaccine availability as it is essential to revive the economy.
