Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reports that, in June 2022, the volume of investments in tangible fixed assets was 8.2 percent larger year on year. This is mainly because investments in aircraft, vessels, dwellings, buildings and machinery were up.

Investment data have not been adjusted for calendar effects. June 2022 had one working day less than June 2021. According to the CBS Investment Radar, the circumstances for investments in the Netherlands are less favourable in August than they were in June.

Investment climate less favourable in August

Every month, CBS publishes updates on the investment climate in the CBS Investment Radar. Relevant circumstances for the investment climate include, for example, the situation on the sales markets and the financial markets. Although the radar indicators show a strong correlation with the investments in fixed assets, improved circumstances do not necessarily translate into an increased growth rate or less investment decline.

 According to the CBS Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands in August is less favourable than in June. This is mainly the result of the drop in consumer confidence and the rising interest rate. Furthermore, manufacturers are slightly less optimistic about their order positions.
