Switzerland: KOF Economic Barometer records worst reading since February in December, but remains fairly upbeat

December 31, 2021

The KOF Economic Barometer came in at 107.0 in December, down from November's 107.5. December's result marked the weakest reading since February. Consequently, the index remained above the long-term average of 100, pointing to a positive near-term outlook for the Swiss economy.

December’s weaker reading was driven by more negative signs regarding private consumption, amid the fresh wave of Covid-19 cases. The finance and insurance sector also contributed negatively. In contrast, indicators regarding foreign demand were more robust.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists project the economy to expand 3.0% in 2022, which is unchanged from the previous month’s forecast. In 2023, the panel expects GDP to grow 1.9%.
