Germany’s manufacturing sector on upward trend for 2023

Published: May 4, 2023

The industrial sector in Germany is expected to continue growing for the rest of the year. The current state of the business climate has seen an improvement six times in a row. Order books are overflowing, and the slow recovery of the world economy will continue to stimulate fresh orders. 

The sluggish recovery of consumer spending will continue. While private household income growth is quickening as a result of wage increases and inflation bonuses, inflation is likely to stay stubbornly high in the months to come. 

As a result, real wages are unlikely to increase until the second part of the year. According to a news release from the IFO Institute, the majority of consumer service providers and merchants still have an unfavorable have unfavorable attitude, despite recent improvements. 

The IFO’s head of predictions, Timo Wollmershauser, stated: 

“The German economy is fragmented at the start of the year. 

On the one hand, manufacturers are gaining from the reduction of supply constraints and the drop in energy prices, and they are currently expected to increase. On the other handside, excessive inflation is reducing individual families’ purchasing power and reducing spending.
