For the first time, Coface updates its global quarterly sector risk assessments for 12 sectors, in 6 regions worldwide (compared to 3 regions previously). In the current context of flagging global growth, the balance between downgrades and upgrades has unsurprisingly shifted towards downgrades, by nine against two. The two pieces of good news are due to Western Europe. After the catching-up that began in 2013, car sales in this region are now gathering momentum. Coface even expects investments in this sector in 2016, in order to meet strengthened demand from Europe. Furthermore, the ageing European population is underpinning the pharmaceuticals sector, whose companies are no longer affected by the fiscal austerity measures in Europe. This sector has therefore been reclassified as medium risk.
