Scottish Business Monitor, 2021 Q3

This report summarises the key results from our latest Fraser of Allander (FAI) Scottish Business Monitor, published in partnership with Addleshaw Goddard.

The survey sampled 500 firms in October from across the Scottish economy.

The survey examined business sentiment in the third quarter of 2021 and the outlook and expectations through the remainder of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.

Our survey results show that business sentiment remained positive in the third quarter of 2021, with all indicators except export activity remaining optimistic for the third consecutive quarter.
