In an auspicious international context, from Equipo Economico we foresee that Spanish GDP will continue to move forward in 2018 at an annual rate of 2.8%. The Spanish economy is currently benefiting from the expansive cycle initiated after the deep crisis, thanks to the economic reforms undertaken, and despite the impact of the increase in uncertainty associated with the situation in Catalonia.

Will Spanish consumption continue to grow?

Will Spanish consumption continue to grow?

  • Por José María Romero Vera
  • 22nd of March 2018

The Spanish economy have started the year 2018 with strong inertia. The most recent indicators point to the fact that consumption growth has accelerated in the first quarter of 2018. In this way, GDP growth will again be supported by the strength of household consumption, deemed to increase by 2.3% this year and 2.1% next year. Several factors will continue to support positive consumption data in the coming months. In this scenario, we estimate consumption will only reach its pre-crisis levels in the second quarter of 2019, leaving room for recovery.

Significant dynamism vs. greater uncertainty

Spain’s economic growth has continued to show notable dynamism in the first semester 2018, clearly above the European average. It moves forward along the same lines as the global product. However, we also observe the growing divergence occurring as the year goes on between the robust economic data and the greater uncertainty arising from an increased risk, both for the global economy and Spain.

Impact of Covid-19 and outlook for the Spanish economy.

Impact of Covid-19 and outlook for the Spanish economy.

The world economy is being strongly affected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The necessary search for the containment of the progression of the disease has led to a general disruption of the economic activity, including Spain. In this context, we expect the contraction of Spanish GDP to reach 10% in 2020. The impact of the crisis will be heterogeneous at the sectorial level. In order to recover from this crisis, the needs of the productive network must be considered with the utmost care, since they represent the main generator of employment.

Economic forecasts for 2021 are a reference, yet to be built.

  • 9th of July 2020

At Equipo Economico we maintain, at the moment, our estimated contraction of the Spanish GDP of, at least, 10% in 2020. In 2021, the economy pickup would allow it to grow at 7.2%, although this will be insufficient to reach previous annual levels of growth and employment. The implementation of an adequate economic policy is urgent to overcome the challenges posed by the depth of the crisis in Spain and strengthen recovery.

Outlook for Spain in Covid-19 times: the need to establish the basis for an economic recovery.

Outlook for Spain in Covid-19 times: the need to establish the basis for an economic recovery.

  • Por José María Romero Vera, Andrea Cordero López y Andrea Rodríguez Nieto.
  • 17th of September 2020

The world economy continues to tackle the severe crisis caused by Covid-19. The pandemic has plummeted the Spanish economy harder than the rest of its European partners. The recovery of activity in the weeks following the end of the confinement has not shown the expected drive during the summer. Against this backdrop, Equipo Económico (Ee) has revised its GDP forecast for this year two points downwards, when the drop in GDP will reach -12.0%. The degree of success and effectiveness of economic policy will very much determine the strength of the recovery.
