IVK – German Adhesives Association: Industry’s Business Perspective has not been as optimistic since 2011

Despite economic and geo-political risks, a solid global economic upswing is emerging, and it is also perceptible in the German Adhesives Industry. The positive development is based on a good export situation, a good construction market as well as on an increasing demand & investments in mechanical engineering. A slight headwind derives from currency effects and challenges regarding the current raw-material availability. The good economic conditions are also reflected in IVK’s bi-annual Business Survey: the Business Barometer shows a positive picture of the current market- & business situation, and of the sales development; the industry’s business perspective has not been as optimistic since 2011. This positive business-rating also applies to the expectations of IVKs membership with a view on the upcoming financial year. The results of the business survey for the German and Dutch-speaking areas (A, CH & NL) show an even slightly better economic outlook in terms of market conditions and sales.
