PANORAMA SECTORS - THE COFACE ECONOMIC PUBLICATIONS
This end of year panorama starts with the risk assessment of 14 sectors in the three regions we monitor. North America is witnessing major evolutions. Our assessments in this region are improving for chemicals, transportation and textile-clothing. These three sectors are benefiting from the good shape of the American economy and from the fall in oil prices.
This drop is particularly helping US airline companies, who are reaping the fruits of their efforts to restructure their activities and By Coface Group Economists improve their margins. North American chemical companies are gaining advantages through their access to non-conventional oil and gas, and through the upward trend in the activities of their main customers (automotive, construction).
