Economic Outlook, May 2017 - Retail disrupted: Pressure and Potential in the Digital Age​


Special report

Euler Hermes’ Digitail (Digital Retail) survey measures risks related to the rapid digitization of the retail sector. Our scorecard aims to gauge the digital pressure and digital potential based on ten indicators in twelve countries. It is derived from secondary data such as financials and national statistics, as well as in-house expert judgment from 1,500 credit analysts and underwriters around the world. Omni-channeling, cost of online presence, and mobility are perceived as the top three industry disruptors. Yet there is much regional and local divergence.

Economic Outlook, October 2016 - Trade Wars: The Force Weakens


Special report

Global trade growth weakens to +2.1% in 2016 in volume. In 2017, it would grow by a modest +3.1%. Demand shocks, the super slump in commodities prices, currency war, and domesticalization (lesser dependence on trade) explain this disappointing performance. In the medium-term, because of structural shifts and financial fragmentation, growth in the volume of world trade is expected to stay below +4% annually. In this context, companies will have to find new alternatives – such as digitalization - to expand their business.

Another is the growing fascination with and investment in the future of the sector and in particular electric and autonomous cars.

Economic Outlook, August 2016 - The Price of Growth

 

Global growth

​Global growth could slow this year to +2.4% and might accelerate marginally in 2017 (+2.7%).  The slowdown in prices has pushed down nominal growth, turnovers, and trade. This priceless growth is set to cause a rise in insolvencies by +1% this year and in 2017. Net consumers, importers, and debtors benefit from low prices and yields, while net producers and exporters, savers and creditors are having a hard time.
