EMI May 2016: Temperature is rising for Swedish exports

Export Managers’ Index, EMI, that reflects the current situation and accounts for both goods and services exports, rose to 58,8 in the second quarter from 56,9 during the first quarter. This is the highest result since the third quarter of 2014.

EMI forecast (the index component for the forward-looking questions) increased with 6,5 units to 65 in the second quarter. EMI present however fell with 2,7 units to 52,6 in the second quarter. An increase of EMI forecast indicates a rising EMI.

The large companies were behind the increase in EMI also in the second quarter. The big difference however is that EMI for small and middle sized companies levelled out after decreasing in the two previous surveys, except for export order backlogs. An increasing number of Swedish companies expect growing demand, particularly from Western Europe but also from North America.
