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.

From the Export Credit Trends Survey, December 2019

The export order intake continues to recede, but from a high starting point. This is most notable with large companies.

Employment plans are falling on all fronts, for large and small companies, from both a 6-month and a 12-month basis, in Sweden and abroad.

Considerably more exporters are of the opinion that it has become cheaper to borrow.

The liquidity situation for companies has improved since the spring survey.
