Ireland - Population

While still strong, the highly-open Irish economy is likely experiencing a slowdown ahead of the UK’s departure from the Eurozone, with the prospect of a no-deal Brexit weighing on business investment. This was visible in the third quarter, which saw a marked downturn in growth as uncertainty surrounding Brexit has led to businesses delaying investment decisions. While exports surged overall in October and November, weakness in the sterling relative to the euro has made Irish exports less competitive, thus having an adverse impact on sales to the UK. Available data for the fourth quarter corroborates this downward trend: Industrial production contracted, on average, in the first two months of Q4; the manufacturing and services PMIs lost ground in the quarter; and consumer confidence remained in pessimistic territory throughout the period, as households’ concerns over Brexit intensified.
