Retail Sales in Hungary

Hungary Retail Sales | Economic News & Forecasts

Hungary - Retail Sales

Growth reached a near two-decade high in the first quarter, powered by the manufacturing and construction sectors. From the demand side, each propelled fixed investment; capacity constraints led manufacturers to upgrade machinery and equipment, while European Union-tied structural funds continued to fuel a construction boom. Moreover, household spending remained a force to be reckoned with amid the further tightening of the labor market. On the external front, export growth picked up despite some turbulence within the Eurozone, outpacing import growth in the process. Looking ahead, softer survey-based data and higher inflation at the outset of the second quarter hint at an impending cool-off. In politics, voters handed Viktor Orban’s anti-immigrant Fidesz party a resounding victory at the EU’s elections on 26 May, delivering him a mandate and all but ensuring further clashes with Brussels.
