Total household expenditures in Malaysia have been growing at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2014 to 2018, reflecting a still-growing consumer goods and retail sector despite a turbulent political environment that saw Malaysia’s first change of government since its independence from Britain. Malaysia’s food production is insufficient to meet domestic demand and the MYR depreciation by approximately 20.8% from January 2014 to December 2018 has contributed to the increase in the proportion of household spending on food and non-alcoholic beverages. This has constrained the ability of lower-tomiddle income households to spend on non-essential items. In contrast, middle-to-upper income households have been increasing their discretionary spending in line with their increased income.
