Fall of Polish GDP and reintroduced restrictions

Economic Analysis | Weekly

August started with still strong positive momentum of economies recovering after spring lockdowns. At the same time COVID-19 statistics of daily cases show that the world is facing the second wave of the pandemic. As a result there is pressure to reintroduce restrictions, also in Poland, albeit shaped in such a way not to curb activity in the recovering economies. Still, it is worth to track current data, especially the US ones – July output and retail sales, August consumer sentiment – in search of negative impact of the intensifying pandemic.


Business and consumer mood keep improving

Economic Analysis | Economic comment

In July all sectoral business sentiment indicators improved, with both the current assessment and the expectations sub-indexes rising across the board. Industry expectations index is already back to pre-pandemic level. Consumer sentiment also kept improving in all aspects. Views on current and future own financial situation as well as on overall economic situation are already less negative than during the last two downturns. The July sentiment indexes support the view of V-shaped economic rebound.


The rising wave

Economic Analysis | MACROscope

After a very deep collapse of economic activity in April, May and June saw signals of rebound from the bottom, as the economic and social restriction were being lifted. Possibly, we are approaching the wave of upward forecasts revisions (especially those more pessimistic). While most of developed countries were able to suppress the numbers of new infections effectively, in many emerging economies the wave is still rising. Worrying sign is the resurgence of infections in regions where restrictions were relaxed after they seemingly coped with pandemic.

We still believe the scenario of economic growth for Poland could be V-shaped: after GDP drop by almost 12% y/y in 2Q20, every next quarter should be better and as a result GDP could drop by c.4% this year and rebound by almost 6% in 2021. 


Rates and FX Outlook - September 2016

Economic Analysis | Rates and FX

In September's Rates and FX Outlook:

  • Poland’s GDP growth failed to accelerate in 2Q16, with investments surprising negatively (-4.9% y/y), and we think that the second half of the year will see no significant improvement in economic growth. Although private consumption is likely to gain strength in the coming quarters, supported by solid labour income and the new child subsidies, it may take time until investments recover, and the positive impact of net exports will be hard to maintain (export growth may decelerate and imports accelerate). We expect a more significant investment pick-up next year, but by then the impact of the 500+ child benefit programme on consumption will be dissipating. Therefore, we forecast that GDP will grow 3.1% in 2016 and 2.9% in 2017.
