Switzerland - Industry

Although GDP data for Q3 is not yet available, the economy appeared to maintain healthy growth momentum in the quarter. The manufacturing and services PMIs averaged comfortably within positive territory amid robust expansions in output and new orders, while the KOF Economic Barometer was well above its long-term average, despite falling relative to Q2. Moreover, the unemployment rate averaged notably lower in Q3 than in Q2, which should have aided consumer spending. Turning to Q4, available signs suggest that the economy is losing steam, with the manufacturing PMI, services PMI and KOF Economic Barometer moving lower in October amid supply constraints and higher input prices. In addition, Covid-19 cases are surging, which could potentially lead to tighter restrictions ahead.
