Switzerland Business Confidence  1991-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The KOF Economic Barometer in Switzerland fell by 4.5 points to 106.9 in January of 2018, below an upwardly revised 111.4 in December which was the highest since June of 2010. Figures came below market expectations of 110.9, mainly due to slower growth in manufacturing and banking sector. Also, deterioration was observed for hotel and restaurant industry, export development, construction sector and private consumption. Despite the decline, the indicator remains well above its long-term average and still indicates a more dynamic economic development than in mid-2017. The recovery of the Swiss economy is thus likely to continue, albeit with slightly less momentum than in the past few months. Business Confidence in Switzerland averaged 101.19 Index Points from 1991 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 121.50 Index Points in November of 2009 and a record low of 67.70 Index Points in December of 2008.
