Singapore Economic Outlook
December 16, 2021The economy expanded more than previously expected in Q3, according to revised estimates, driven by continued strong growth in a manufacturing sector benefiting from healthy global demand for electronics. Turning to Q4, a less favorable base effect will no doubt act as a damper to activity, although available data points to solid underlying dynamics. Despite PMI readings for both the manufacturing and electronics sectors averaging marginally lower in October–November than in Q3, they both remained within expansionary territory in the period, while non-oil exports grew at the fastest rate in four years in October. Moreover, authorities have continued to ease restrictions as daily Covid-19 cases have reduced since hitting record highs in late October, with a region-leading vaccination campaign resulting in over 90% of the population vaccinated and around 25% having received booster shots.
Singapore Economic GrowthEconomic growth is forecast to slow in 2022 as the base effect fades, following this year’s projected decade-high rate. Domestically, consumer and capital spending growth will ease from this year´s estimated levels, while a normalization in global trade should see export growth moderate. As such, growth should be below that of most other major economies in the region. FocusEconomics panelists project the economy to expand 4.1% in 2022, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month, and to grow 3.3% in 2023.
