Macro-economic vision on 60 business sectors in The Netherlands (in Dutch)

04 February 2014

This study by the ING Bank Economic Bureau describes the most important economical developments in 60 sectors of the Dutch economy for 2014. After two years of recession, a moderate growth of 0.5% is expected in 2014. This is mostly due to increased exports, particularly in the machinery industry and transport equipment industry. Increased exports also lead to more investments.
The food industry is also growing, stimulating growth in the packaging suppliers industries as well. Growth is also predicted for the hotel and catering industry, partly because the number of tourists will grow. Online shopping is growing rapidly, sometimes to the detriment of conventional retail.
