In a recent report, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) announced that Switzerland’s economy likely showed slightly better performance in the first quarter of 2024 compared to previous quarters. The central bank stated that many economic indicators suggest that economic activity was more dynamic during this period.

Despite this positive outlook, the SNB noted that moderate economic growth in the first quarter was mainly driven by the service sector, while manufacturing remained stagnant. Weak global demand and challenges related to the Swiss franc exchange rate were cited as concerns for manufacturing companies.

One major challenge facing manufacturers is pressure on their margins due to the lack of pricing latitude. This has led some companies to cut costs in order to maintain profitability, while others have had to postpone investments or even close down operations altogether.

However, there is some good news for service sector firms, which are expecting robust growth to continue. On the other hand, manufacturing companies anticipate sales increases in the future as they continue to adapt to changing market conditions and focus on innovation and cost efficiency.
