Euro Growth Indicator August 2016

Euro Growth Indicator shows some strengthening in euro area growth

The Euro Growth Indicator, calculated by the Euroframe group in August 2016, suggests an acceleration of GDP growth in the third quarter of 2016 both in comparison to the second quarter and to the previous estimate in July. Quarter-on-quarter GDP growth in the euro area would accelerate to 0.6 per cent in the third quarter, up by 0.1 percentage points from July’s indicator value.  The implied year-on-year growth rate would be 1.8 per cent.

Euro Growth Indicator July 2016

Euro area GDP expected to remain on a moderate growth path

Real GDP in the euro area should grow by 0.5 and 0.4 percent, respectively, in the second and third quarters of this year, according to the July Euro Growth Indicator. The indicator’s estimate for the second quarter has been revised slightly upward, while the estimate for 2016Q3 is unchanged. On a y-o-y basis, these forecasts imply a stronger momentum, rising from 1.5 percent growth in 2016Q1 to 1.8 and 1.9 percent in the second and third quarters, respectively.

Euro Growth Indicator May 2016

Euro Growth Indicator does not confirm a strengthening in Euro Area Growth

The Euro Growth Indicator calculated by the EUROFRAME group in May 2016 suggests a continuation of moderate GDP growth in the first half of 2016. In quarter-on-quarter terms, the euro area GDP would grow by 0.3 per cent in the first two quarters of 2016 as it did in the third and fourth quarters in 2015. The Indicator misses the pick-up in euro area growth to 0.6 per cent (QoQ) in the first quarter indicated by the Eurostat flash estimate, which may suggest a new moderation of GDP growth after the first quarter.
