Survey of Professional Forecasters on Macroeconomic Indicators – Results of the 84th Round

The Reserve Bank has been conducting the survey of professional forecasters (SPF) since September 2007. Forty-one panellists participated in the 84th round of the survey conducted during September 2023. The survey results are summarised in terms of their median forecasts and summary statistics are presented in Annexes 1-7.

Highlights:

1. Output

  • Real gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecast for 2023-24 has been revised up by 10 basis points (bps) to 6.2 per cent; it is expected to grow by 6.3 per cent in 2024-25 (Table 1).

  • SPF panellists placed GDP growth forecasts in the range of 5.7-7.2 per cent for 2023-24 and in the range of 5.4-7.6 per cent for 2024-25 (Annexes 1 and 2).

  • Forecasters have assigned highest probability to real GDP growth in the range 6.0-6.4 per cent for both 2023-24 and 2024-25 (Chart 1).

Note: Tail parts of the distributions are not presented in this chart but are included in Annex 6.

  • Annual growth in real private final consumption expenditure (PFCE) and real gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) for 2023-24 are expected at 6.0 per cent and 7.2 per cent, respectively.

  • Real gross value added (GVA) growth projection for 2023-24 has been revised up by 20 bps to 6.1 per cent.

  • In terms of quarterly path, real GDP is expected to grow (y-o-y) by 6.3 per cent in Q2:2023-24 and thereafter moderate to 5.8 per cent in Q3:2023-24 and further to 5.4 per cent in Q4:2023-24. It is expected to grow at 6.0-6.4 per cent in H1:2024-25 (Table 2).

2. Inflation

  • Annual headline inflation, based on consumer price index (CPI), is expected at 5.5 per cent for 2023-24 and 4.7 per cent during 2024-25 (Annexes 1 and 2).

  • Headline CPI inflation (y-o-y) is expected at 6.6 per cent in Q2:2023-24 and is likely to moderate in the range of 5.1-5.5 per cent during the next three quarters (Table 3). Headline inflation forecast path has been revised up by 100 bps for Q2:2023-24 whereas it has broadly remained unchanged in the next three quarters.

  • CPI inflation, excluding food and beverages, pan, tobacco and intoxicants, and fuel and light, is expected at 4.9 per cent during Q2 and likely to remain in the narrow range of 4.6-4.7 per cent over the subsequent quarters.

3. External Sector

  • Merchandise exports and imports are projected to decline by (-)5.9 per cent and (-)4.5 per cent, respectively, in US dollar terms during 2023-24 and both are expected to grow by 6.0 per cent during 2024-25 (Table 4).

  • Current account deficit (CAD) is expected at 1.5 per cent (of GDP at current market prices) in 2023-24 and at 1.6 per cent in 2024-25.
