Accordingly with the opinions expressed in the April 2015 Investment Survey (with an inquiring period between the 1st April and the 1st July 2015), the entrepreneurial investment is expected to increase by 2.5% in 2015, which compares with the change rate of -2.2% obtained in the October 2014 Investment Survey. The same survey also points to a 5.4% increase of investment in 2014, which represents an upward revision comparing with the perspectives revealed in the previous survey (change rate of 1.0%).
Among the investment objectives, the relative weights of the rationalization and restructuration and the replacement investments might increase from 2014 to 2015, while the relative weight of the extension of the production capacity and the other investments decreases.
Between 2014 and 2015, the percentage of firms that refer the deterioration of the sales perspectives as the main limitative factor decreased, while the relative weight of the uncertainty about the investment profitability increased.
