Hungary’s Economy Engine Automotive Industry to Pull the Brakes?

In recent years, Hungary has achieved strong economic growth. However, according to the latest statistics, there is a significant downturn in the production of several sectors, most prominently including the automotive industry. Given the huge weight of this area in Hungary’s economy, how the negative global trends affect the country’s performance is an important question.

Hungary is one of the most exposed economies to the automotive industry. The sector has become a critical engine of industrial production in Hungary since 2011, and in the last nearly two decades, companies in the industry have managed to increase their output significantly almost every year, mainly due to lasting export demand. If the export market were to fall behind, it would hugely impact the economy and drastically degrade its performance.

In their 2018 industry report, the Central Statistical Office (KSH) revealed that the automotive industry’s share of the manufacturing output was over 28% in 2018, although their output increased only slightly, by 1.5% in 2017 and then practically stagnated in 2018.

Hungary steps up EU fund disbursement in January

The monthly disbursement of EU funds in Hungary was nearly HUF 290 bn in January, a two-year high, Portfolio's latest monthly analysis reveals. This puts the total amount disbursed above the HUF 7,000 bn mark. Meanwhile, Hungarian authorities have cancelled a large number of contracts in economic development tenders, which means that the number of grants awarded has decreased in January. Transfers by the EU only amounted to HUF 45 bn last month as domestic allocations picked up, which means that the budget had to finance a larger amount of programmes.


The monthly amount of EU funds disbursed was HUF 287 bn in January according to Portfolio calculations, substantially more than in recent months and higher than any time during the past two years. The biggest increase was in the Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme (EDIOP/GINOP) and the Integrated Transport Development Operational Programme (ITDOP/IKOP).
