Switzerland Business Confidence  1991-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The KOF Economic Barometer in Switzerland jumped 3 points from the previous month to 109.1 in October 2017, beating market expectations of 105.5. It was the highest reading since September 2010, mainly driven by the banking and manufacturing indicators. Within manufacturing, the indicators for machinery, metal, electrical equipment, paper and other manufacturing industries are pointing upwards, while data on the food, wood and chemicals industries dampened the otherwise generally positive development. In addition, the prospects for exports and the accommodation and food service activities are also somewhat better than before. Business Confidence in Switzerland averaged 101.11 from 1991 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 121.50 in November of 2009 and a record low of 67.70 in December of 2008.
