In Japan, the quarterly Tankan Index of Sentiment at Large Manufacturers covers about 1,100 companies with capital over 1 billion Yen. The survey is done by mail or e-mail and asks participants to evaluate current trends and conditions in the business place and their respective industries as well as their expected business activities for the next quarter and year. The indicator is calculated by subtracting the percentage share of enterprises responding on the negative side from the share giving positive assessments. The index varies on a scale of -100 to 100 such that a value above zero indicates business optimism, a value below zero pessimism and 0 indicates neutrality.

Latest Updates

The Bank of Japan's index for big manufacturers' sentiment fell to 9 in the second quarter of 2022 from 14 in the previous quarter, hit by rising input costs and supply disruptions caused by the war in Ukraine and China's strict COVID-19 lockdowns. The latest figure also came in below expectations for a reading of 13 and hit the lowest since March 2021. Mood softened mainly among firms producing ships & heavy machinery (-19), motor vehicles (-19), food & beverages (-11), textiles (-10), pulp & paper (-7) and iron & steel (-6). Japan’s economy likely stalled in the current quarter, with recent data showing the country’s factory output fell the most in two years in May. The tankan will be among data scrutinized at the Bank of Japan's upcoming rate-setting meeting on July 20-21, when the board produces fresh quarterly growth and inflation projections.
