Insolvency Forecasts August 2016

Atradius news

Atradius has published an Economic Research Report targeting insolvencies across international markets from issues such as Brexit and Eurozone market activity.

According to the Atradius insolvency forecast model, little to no improvement is expected in business insolvencies in the majority of advanced markets this year. The overall outlook for insolvencies has worsened through 2016 in line with downward revisions to GDP forecasts. Brexit is likely to weigh on confidence in many advanced markets and has created financial market volatility. Global demand is expected to remain subdued, as low commodity prices negatively affect economic growth in emerging markets. In 2017 insolvencies are also anticipated to show little or no improvement, which fits into the picture of a weakening business cycle. Figure 2 and 3 summarize the results by giving the percentage change in insolvencies forecast per country for both this year and the next.
