How is the current international environment affecting exporters and their willingness to trade? In
our Allianz Trade Global Survey 2022, we decided to check the pulse of companies in the United
States, China, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Germany. Two surveys were carried out – one
before the start of the invasion of Ukraine and one after, involving nearly 3,000 corporates.
After the optimism of the global “grand reopening” in 2021, our survey shows that 2022 could be
much more of a rocky road for exporters. Both business and consumer confidence have taken a hit
from the war in Ukraine, and higher commodity prices and extended supply-chain disruptions will
ramp up the cost of exporting for months to come.
