Export Managers' Index Q4 2019

Business Sweden’s Export Managers’ Index (EMI), which reflects sentiment among exporters of goods and services remained virtually unchanged in the fourth quarter 2019. EMI increased marginally by 0.1 units to 50.7 in the fourth quarter, compared with 50.6 in the third quarter.

This is a low level from a historical perspective, the likes of which has not been seen since the fourth quarter of 2012 when the index was even lower. The fact that EMI is hovering around the 50-mark – which is the dividing line between optimism and pessimism – means that there are as just as many companies who believe in a strengthening as in a weakening in export development.  This indicates that the sentiment among export companies is normal.
