The new Market Sentiment Report consists of data gathered 9-20 March and shows that the spread of COVID-19 across the world has sent serious shock waves across economies and financial markets.
The methodology and scope of the new report is largely consistent with the approach which we applied in the 2019 reports, although we have tried to give this edition a Perstorp look and feel to an even greater degree.
Anders Nyberg, VP Market Intelligence, says:
"Whilst we have done some improvements to the report, the foundation of it is still the much appreciated input from approximately 200 of our top customers, which helps us form a fact-based, top-level understanding of the current Market Sentiment for a wide range of market segments.
This particular issue of the Market Sentiment report is produced during very special circumstances. The COVID-19 pandemic is a humanitarian challenge that evolves day by day. Enterprise leaders and their teams are dealing with unprecedented levels of disruption and uncertainty".
