The GDP of Switzerland is expected to reach $672.4 billion by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 2%.
The economic slowdown in Europe is likely to shrink the GDP growth of the country and weaken its fiscal position in 2013, but it is anticipated to revive again in 2014. The deepening Euro crisis has made the Swiss economy a safe haven for investors. Its currency has significantly appreciated, leading to a deflationary situation in the country. Switzerland’s service sector is the leading segment, making maximum contributions to the economy.

The report analyzes that the country’s safe haven currency has made it vulnerable to the financial turbulence roiling international markets. The worsening Euro debt crisis has surged capital inflows into the country, which has led to the gradual appreciation of Swiss franc, dragging the economy into deflation territory. The country’s aging population accounts for 22% of the total populace and has put pressure on the social security funds of the government. This type of situation can have a negative impact on the fiscal balance of the country in the absence of certain reforms.

The study reveals that increasing per capita income and high urbanization have paved the way for huge business opportunities in food, real estate, retail and consumer products, and automotive industries. Opportunities in the high-tech and telecommunication technology industries exist, as they benefit from the excellent educational quality of the universities in the nation.
