The Ifo Business Climate Index in Germany rose to 95.0 in November 2019 from a revised 94.7 in the previous month, matching market expectations. Companies’ assessment of the current situation was slightly better (97.9 vs 97.8 in October), while their expectations were also less pessimistic (92.1 vs 91.6). Across sectors, sentiment improved among service providers (17.3 vs 16.7) and traders (0.9 vs -3.3) amid signs that business will be very good this Christmas. Meanwhile, confidence among manufacturers continued to deteriorate (-5.9 vs -5.3) as companies still find their current order backlog very disappointing and as they are planning further production cutbacks. Morale among constructors was also weaker (20.4 vs 21.0). Business Confidence in Germany averaged 98.09 Index Points from 1991 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 109.80 Index Points in January of 1991 and a record low of 80 Index Points in March of 2009. source: Ifo Institute

Germany Ifo Business Climate Index

In Germany, the IFO Business Climate Index measures entrepreneurs’ sentiment about current business situation and their expectations for the next 6 months. The survey is made by phone and covers 9,000 firms in manufacturing, the service sector, trade and construction. The Business Climate Balance is constructed as the difference between the percentage share of executives that are optimistic and the share that are pessimistic. This balance can take values between -100 (all responding firms assess their situation as poor and expect business to deteriorate) and +100 (all responding firms assessed their situation as good and expect an improvement in their business). For the calculation of the IFO Business Climate Index, the Balance is normalized to the average of a base year (currently 2015). This page provides the latest reported value for - Germany Business Confidence - plus previous releases, historical high and low, short-term forecast and long-term prediction, economic calendar, survey consensus and news. Germany Ifo Business Climate Index - actual data, historical chart and calendar of releases - was last updated on December of 2019.
