🔎 CONSIDERATIONS

The trend in May looks essentially flat, indicating that the market in the first half of 2024 is stabilizing, after its growth in the years following the pandemic. Nevertheless, the market level is still 4% higher than it was a year ago. This phenomenon is significantly affected by the price increase, although a slowdown has been observed in recent months.

🔎 CONSIDERATIONS

The performance in May is slightly below the value recorded in the same period last year. This is the result of a more intense phase of fluctuations affecting March, April and May, which were marked by both sudden drops due to holidays being scheduled differently compared to 2023 – i.e. Easter in March – and subsequent technical rebounds in April, which showed a considerable increase in sales. A flattening dynamic also followed, as a result of the end of these varied influences. Consequently, the market is now in a more stable phase, with an overall value just 1.6% higher than the same period in 2023.
