Confidence Indicator for the industrial ecosystems

Updated every month and based on data extracted by the Joint Harmonised EU Programme of Business and Consumer Surveys, provides a timely indication of the state of each ecosystem at the EU level.

We build a profile of the economic sentiment for each ecosystem, by calculating a weighted average of the values of those sectors included in the definition of each ecosystem; the weights are based on the share of value added that each sector has in the total value added of the ecosystem, as a measure of the relevance of that sector to that ecosystem.

Key messages of this edition

  • The overall trend remains stable to rather positive compared to previous months. Only two ecosystems (Retail and Construction) recorded a noticeable decrease compared to May;
  • The largest increase was recorded for Electronics and Aerospace & Defence;
  • The rise in confidence for Electronics is driven mostly by the lift in Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products;
  • The raise in confidence for Aerospace & Defence is driven mostly by the lift in Security and investigation activities and Repair and installation of machinery and equipment outweighing the decrease in other sectors.

Note: For 'Retail', 'Agrifood', 'Proximity-Social Economy', 'Renewable Energies', and 'Health', data available only partially cover that ecosystem, so we used dashed lines and the related values have to be interpreted with caution
