Export Credit Trends Survey

The Export Credit Trends Survey is a temperature gauge for the Swedish export industry. We ask exporters about their financial requirements, access to financing, export order intake, employment projections, interest rates and strength of the Swedish krona, etc.

Sweden has a small, open economy that is dependent to a large extent on global demand for products and services. The Swedish financial market is strongly linked to the international capital market. As such, there is substantial interest in following its economic and financial development to understand the challenges and opportunities ahead. The Export Credit Trends Survey is published twice per year, in June and December, only in Swedish.

From the Export Credit Trends Survey, December 2020

  • Four out of ten export companies believe that their financial situation will strengthen in the next 12 months. It´s a sharp increase compared with 12 percent in the spring survey.
  • Three out of ten believe the krona exchange rate is favorable, which is half as many as last spring.
  • Every third company expects to increase the number of employees in Sweden in the next six months. This is a sharp increase compared to eight percent this spring.
  • Four out of ten experience higher sustainability requirements from their customers in the past year.
