Q1 Business Outlook Survey

The results of Dublin Chamber’s Q1 Business Outlook Survey are now online, and they reveal that 77% of companies saw their turnover decrease in 2020, with 1 in 6 seeing their turnover decrease by at least 50%. However, despite the significant impact of Covid-19 on businesses, support remains high for prioritising investment in infrastructure and housing in the next budget. Forward thinking is evident in other areas too, with over half of businesses reporting that they had made changes to become more sustainable in the past 12 months.


The Q1 Business Outlook Survey was based on a sample of over 300 companies in the Greater Dublin Area, and its results also reveal insights on staff upskilling, business challenges, Covid-19 supports, and expectations for revenue, profit, and staff numbers over the next three months.
