The Business Expectations Index (BEI) in India fell to 113.5 in the first quarter of 2019-20 fiscal year from 116.2 in the previous three-month period, as firms anticipated softer expansion in demand, with prospect of employment holding up, while expressed muted optimism on profit margins as they see large increases in staff costs. Still, sentiment on the overall financial situation remained optimistic on expectations of easier availability of finance from internal accruals. Business Confidence in India averaged 117.80 Index Points from 2000 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 127.50 Index Points in the second quarter of 2007 and a record low of 96.40 Index Points in the second quarter of 2009.

Business Confidence in India is expected to be 115.50 Index Points by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.

India Business Expectations Index (BEI)

In India, the Business Expectations Index (BEI) is calculated as a weighted (share of GVA of different industry group) net response of nine business indicators. The nine indicators considered are: (1) overall business situation; (2) production; (3) order books; (4) inventory of raw material; (5) inventory of finished goods; (6) profit margins; (7) employment; (8) exports; and (9) capacity utilisation. BEI gives a snapshot of the business outlook in every quarter and takes values between 0 and 200, with 100 being the threshold separating expansion from contraction.
