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 June 2021

  • For half of exporters, their financial positions have strengthened over the last six months and a similar number expect their finances to strengthen further in the next 12 months.
  • Six of ten companies expect an increased export order intake in the next year, which is an increase compared with five of ten companies last autumn.
  • 50% of exporters expect to increase the amount of employees in Sweden in the coming year. This is a record amount and a clear increase compared with 32% last autumn.
  • One third of exporters expect rising interest rates in the coming year, up substantially from just over 10% last autumn.
