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

First Quarter Summary: At the end of what has been a remarkable boom – both regarding its duration and its strength – the sector shows clear signs of a cooldown. March saw the strongest deterioration of the business climate since 3.5 years. The current scenario is still regarded positive by a majority of manufacturers, and future expectations are also slightly positive on average. When it comes to regions, the most notable improvements are seen for the Turkish and the Latin American markets. European regions are all seen slightly less positive by the surveyed companies compared to February.
