Eurozone Economic Forecast

Eurozone Economic Outlook

September 26, 2017

Comprehensive GDP data confirmed that the Eurozone’s recovery continued in the second quarter of 2017, supported by both robust domestic demand and the external sector. Positive tailwinds from a stronger labor market, upbeat sentiment and a healthier global backdrop led to buoyant growth in the quarter. Incoming data for Q3 points to a continuation of firm activity. Industrial production rebounded in July, economic sentiment rose to an over 10-year high in August and the composite PMI increased in September. However, the euro has appreciated notably this year and recent figures suggest that its strength could be taking a bite out of overseas sales: The trade surplus narrowed more than had been expected in July.

Eurozone Economic Growth

September 26, 2017

The FocusEconomics panel sees the Eurozone expanding a solid 2.1% this year as the economy fires on all cylinders. Next year, GDP is projected to grow at a solid, but more moderate, clip of 1.8%, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. While lower unemployment will continue to support household consumption, a strong euro could weigh on export growth.
