Selvom økonomien er i vækst, kan et højt gældsniveau blandt svenskerne blive problematisk, hvis huspriserne falder og renten stiger.

Economic situation

Growth slows down in 2018, but remains robust

The Swedish economy is forecast to grow 2.4% in 2018 after increasing 2.7% in 2017. Supported by negative interest rates, both household consumption and investment growth are expected to continue, although at a lower rate than in previous years.

In order to combat deflation and to weaken the currency, the Swedish Central Bank has repeatedly lowered the repo rate since July 2014, which has been -0.5% since February 2016. Inflation picked up again in 2017 and is expected to remain close to 2% in 2018. The expansionary monetary policy has driven investments and asset prices.

A potential downside risk to the economy could be high household debt, triggered by housing demand and easy access to credit. In 2017 the household debt-to-disposable-income-ratio was more than 180%, making private households vulnerable to sharp house price decreases and interest rate increases.
