Economic analysis

Published 16 September 2016 Contact: Anders Rune

We analyse and evaluate the economic importance of our member companies in society. Emphasis lies on analysing international competition, profitability, economic outlook and the labour market. The results are distributed through reports and newsletters.

The quarterly Business Activity Survey is based on the companies’ own assessments and includes data on the latest development for the motor car and transport industries, telecom, electric machines and electronics, manufacturers of industrial machines and metal goods. Furthermore, the development for suppliers to the motor car, electronics, machinery and construction industries are analysed.

In November each year we present the forecast for the following year. The Engineering Economic Outlook takes an international perspective as well as analyses the outlook for the different sectors of the Swedish engineering industry. The report is updated in May the following year.

The Business Activity Survey and Engineering Economic Outlook are available in English. Click on publications to the right to access the latest issues.
