Germany Zew Economic Sentiment Index  1991-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany was flat at -8.2 in May of 2018, the same as in April and in line with market expectations. It remains the lowest reading since November 2012. Meanwhile, the assessment of the current situation decreased by 0.5 points to 87.4, higher than market consensus of 86.2. "The effects of the relatively positive values for German exports and production in March 2018 have been overshadowed in the most recent survey by uncertainty motivated by recent political events. The US decision to back out of the nuclear treaty with Iran and fears of a further escalation of the international trade conflict with the US, as well as a further rise of crude oil prices, have had an overall negative impact on economic expectations in Germany,” ZEW President said. Zew Economic Sentiment Index in Germany averaged 23.44 from 1991 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 89.60 in January of 2000 and a record low of -63.90 in July of 2008.
