Every month CECE asks around 150 senior European construction equipment industry representatives about their opinion on the state of industry. The objective is to obtain a regular business trend indicator and describe the economic climate.

The CECE Business Climate Index summarizes the survey answers on the evaluation of the current business situation and the expectations for the next 6 months regarding sales.

While detailed results including all questions are exclusively available for participants, a summary is available to all CECE members quarterly. To access the results please click here and log-in as member 


First Quarter Summary: As the Barometer index grew for the seventh consecutive month in March, business index reached its highest value since May 2011. European markets continue to deliver good results stably above the levels of previous year. France, Scandinavia, and Germany are those markets seen most positively by the manufacturers. However, most notably over the last three months was the comeback of the markets beyond Europe. Practically all regions are seen positive, with India and North America taking the lead.
