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

Second Quarter Summary: Within shortest time, the European construction equipment industry has turned around from crisis into boom. The demand boost seen over the last months continues to cover the sector in its entirety. Accordingly, CECE’s business climate index has hit record levels in April and May. While the demand side exhibits a very positive picture, the supply side is increasingly challenging for manufacturers. Low stocks of finished machines and longer delivery times due to unavailability of components could limit further sales growth.
