Every month CECE asks around 220 senior European construction equipment industry representatives about their opinion on the state of industry. The objective is to obtain a regular business trend indicator and describe the economic climate.
The CECE Business Climate Index summarizes the survey answers on the evaluation of the current business situation and the expectations for the next 6 months regarding sales.
While detailed results including all questions are exclusively available for participants, a summary is available to all CECE members quarterly.
CECE Business Climate Index
Third Quarter Summary: As the boom of the European construction equipment sector continues, CECE’s business climate index remains on extremely high levels. The general scenario of the industry is unchanged: The strong demand can’t be fully realized because of supply side bottlenecks. Manufacturers aim to increase capacities – in July, 50% of surveyed companies reported workforce expansion plans. When it comes to markets, North America has seen the strongest uptick, most probably because of renewed optimism about the US infrastructure plan. There is currently no market region where a majority of manufacturers would expect business declines.
