In Germany, the IFO Business Climate Index measures entrepreneurs’ sentiment about current business situation and their expectations for the next 6 months. The survey is made by phone and covers 9,000 firms in manufacturing, the service sector, trade and construction. The Business Climate Balance is constructed as the difference between the percentage share of executives that are optimistic and the share that are pessimistic. This balance can take values between -100 (all responding firms assess their situation as poor and expect business to deteriorate) and +100 (all responding firms assessed their situation as good and expect an improvement in their business). For the calculation of the IFO Business Climate Index, the Balance is normalized to the average of a base year (currently 2015).

Latest Updates

The Ifo Business Climate indicator for Germany dropped to 84.3 in September 2022, the lowest level since the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic shock in May 2020 and well below market consensus of 87.0. Expectations for the coming months were significantly more pessimistic (75.2 vs 80.5 in August), led by record-low expectations in the retail sector, as well as companies' assessments of their current situation (94.5 vs 97.5). The mood has soured across all sectors, with energy intensive industries particularly pessimistic about the coming months and nearly two thirds of companies concerned about supply bottlenecks. By sector, sentiment worsened among manufacturers (-14.2 vs -6.8), service providers (-8.9 vs 1.4), traders (-32.3 vs -25.8), and constructors (-21.6 vs -14.8).
