Eurozone Economy Makes Steady Gains, Signaling Positive Outlook for 2024

April saw further drop in Eurozone unemployment, boosting economic optimism

The eurozone economy is showing signs of improvement, with the manufacturing sector stabilizing and the service sector making progress. Despite unclear data at turning points, the current economic sentiment indicator suggests that there will be ongoing modest growth in the second quarter of 2024. This is a significant shift from 2023 when the economy was mostly stagnant.

In May, the economic sentiment indicator rose from 95.6 to 96, reflecting increased optimism in both industry and services. Manufacturing production has been on the rise, and there has been a noticeable increase in demand for services compared to April. Notably, expectations for selling prices in services are decreasing, indicating that domestic inflation is expected to decrease further.

Overall, the outlook for the eurozone economy is positive, with many indicators pointing towards continued growth. With improvements in both manufacturing and services, it seems that the economy is on the right track for a more prosperous future.
