CECE Business Barometer

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

Fourth Quarter Summary: Despite a slight downturn over the last months, the level of CECE’s business climate index still justifies to talk of a boom in the European construction equipment sector. Both incoming orders and sales are on a constant growth path in Europe.  Manufacturers continue to be bullish about the near future: With the exception of Turkey, manufacturers anticipate more growth to come for all European regions. On the global scene, European companies are most optimistic about the North American market, but growth is also expected for Latin America, China, India, and meanwhile also again for the Middle East markets.
