Business sentiment in India weakest since 2014

While entering the last year of the current regime, the business optimism in India has deteriorated with the country ranking 6th globally on the optimism index in the first quarter of 2018, says Grant Thornton’s International Business Report (IBR), a quarterly global business survey. India has been topping the chart since the new government came into power in 2014 (refer to the graph). However, the confidence has shaken since Q3 2017 with weakening currency and a surge in oil prices (Q3 – 7th, Q4 -5th 2017). In contrast, globally, the business optimism is at an all-time high. The IBR finds that in Q1 2018, global business optimism stands at net 61 per cent - the highest figure recorded in 15 years of research.
