Investments by enterprises in industry; expectations and motives


This table covers the investment expectations and motives of enterprises in the Dutch manufacturing industry. Every spring and autumn, Statistics Netherlands asks enterprises in this sector about their investment expectations for the current and/or subsequent calendar year. This table is compiled with cofinancing of the European Commission.
The investment motives for the current and subsequent calendar year are only asked in the annual autumn survey.

Data available from: 2010
The data collected for publication in May 2020 is partial (approximately three quarters) from before March 12.
March 12 is the turning point for the measures for the COVID-19 pandemic.
In view of the impact of this, the data from before 12 March have been corrected, based on additional requests and the response after 12 March.
