CECE Business Climate Index July 2014

According to CECE Business Barometer of July 2014, the negative future business expectations push business climate index further down, while industry sales stay on a growth path.
When it comes to the next 6 months: sales expectations are still optimistic, but recovery is clearly slowing down. Among all product groups, earthmoving equipment manufacturers have the most positive outlook for the next 6 months. The UK manufacturers remain the most optimistic.
On rentals, a majority of manufacturers reported increasing rental business in the first half of 2014. Even on this market, the strongest momentum was observed in the UK. Manufacturers plan to keep stable the regular workforce, while a majority of manufacturers plans to reduce temporary workforce. During the past month orders from European markets are still slightly growing. In fact, one out of two surveyed manufacturers report growing order intake from beyond Europe.
