GROWTH IN EUROPE AMID CHALLENGES: RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY SHORTAGE ADAPTATION.
The first quarter of 2022 began with impressive results, exceeding expectations regarding total investment volume and overall investment activity. This progress was significantly impacted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The war was one of the most significant and shocking events of the year. It had a powerful effect on the entire economy, particularly on European ventures. As mentioned in our Q3 2022 report, the unexpected extension of the war between Russia and Ukraine has intensified existing macroeconomic challenges, such as high inflation and supply chain shortages, which were primarily resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic.
FOURTH CONSECUTIVE DECLINE IN SENTIMENT, DESPITE A SLIGHTLY POSITIVE OUTLOOK.
The fourth quarter of 2022 saw a continuation of the negative trend that began in the first quarter. The index dropped from 4.7 in Q3 to 4.3 in Q4, a decrease of 8.9% compared to the previous quarter and 36.6% compared to the previous year.
The outlook for Q1 2023 has increased by 6.8% QoQ, continuing the recovery trend from Q4 2022. The main driver for this is a substantially increased perception of fundraising difficulties and anticipated higher activity of investors (17.9% and 16.1% increases, respectively).
