ARTEMA Global Indicator for Septembre 2019 : Uncertainty and lack of visibility

The French CETOP member ARTEMA reports on the market outlook based on an inquiry among their member companies.




More than 100 answers are compiled each month on 3 relevant indicators decided by the members:

  • Activity of the month
  • Activity of the next 3 months
  • Backlog at the end of the month.

The September activity is good and even better overall than in September 2018 and that of the summer.

The activity of the next 3 months should remain well oriented due to orders recorded at the beginning of the year and the comparison with a fourth quarter 2018 which was already weaker.

On the other hand, the backlog continues to fall and the outlook is deteriorating in all sectors.
