year. more of a recovery is not expected until later this year. of a more let's bring in neil wilson. achieve market analyst at markets dot com. welcome to the program, neil. so 0.3 percent growth in the 4th quarter for the arizona. what are we to make of that you know, i think it reflects really the, the 2 key problems that the european economists and facing, which is firstly that omicron wave. and also a bit of delta that we saw in the back end of the year. but the shop times basically locked irons across here in the backend of the year. obviously wade not just on economic activity, but also on sentiment as well. but the, the supply chain both remain. the biggest problem i think at the moment, shortage is affecting car come manufacturers. in particular, we've seen
a big drop in car automotive by european carmakers. last year they production st directed low with, with the chip shortage being a key problem. and i think also we need need to look at inflation and the sort of the effect inflation is having on economic growth. and if you look over the us, inflation is nice seen as the biggest headwind to growth, and i think we are, we are getting to that point today in europe and there's some key german inflation figures out today that we're, that we're paying close attention to. and of course it's topic that these to be able to discussing later this week on thursday at the meeting of the governing council. neil, let me ask you. we've had the german growth figures on, on friday. the german economy contract is 0.7 percent in the 4th quarter. how much of a drag has this been versus the 0.7 percent? the french economy group?
yeah, i mean, it says the case of the german economy is obviously the been the big power house of europe for a while since since the beginning. so clearly the german economy is bigger than than anyone else. and therefore, as a dry, it does have an effect on the overall and bigger the most. so the dragon in germany probably reflects a automotive being being done quite sides of the last year. that is a big problem for, for the years and economy. i think that the numbers in front of our encouraging but of course we're dealing with a, you know, a panoramic that hit the years an economy. we're dealing with base effects all the time here and it's hard to get a handle where exactly we are. i think the keys where things are going to be heading to here and on that front, i think overall it's quite positive, but inflation is going to be the big headwind to, to growth in europe just as is in the u. k. and, and in america. as we are still in the pen demik,
how much of an issue will the pandemic be economically in the next couple of months? so i think, i think we're exiting the pandemic. i think we're renting a phase and i where, where most countries are beginning to live with it. obviously europe's been a bit slow on that front for various reasons. just on a slightly different timing cycle, i think versus say the us and u. k. political decisions have been slightly different, but by large we're exiting the pandemic. we believe this year. and we should be back to sort of 2019 type levels of of moving activity. and so inside, i think the damage is less of a threat this year, then ongoing supply chain problems, ongoing chip shortages and ongoing inflation worries. right. wilson chief market analyst at market dot com. thank you for your thoughts like it my european producers are depend on materials from other parts of the world continue to deal
with disruptions and their supply chains. one german company has decided to reach into its pockets to stay on top of the problem in the town of goods bug german ladder stool and scaffold maker monk is trying to stay one step ahead of the global supply chain shortage. it has invested 10000000 euros into a brand new warehouse, which it plans to use to stockpile raw materials and components that have been difficult to source because of the pandemic. a shortage of magnesium from china interrupted the manufacturers ability to make aluminum rubber feet were in short reserve to. 0 the se, mother, the 40 years i have never experience such a shortage of materials. it has prevented us from making deliveries for months. and this has been going on for over a year. there's hardly had mine in for again, so nice tele analysts predict that supply was in the country are responsible for
the 0.5 to one percent decline in economic growth. last quarter. a severe shortage of semi conductors has also impacted europe. the largest economy, star city of the chips has prompted germany to reconsider how it sources, parts used in computer systems of cars and construction machinery. it has pledged billions of euros to produce the pieces in europe. but since the effects won't be immediate, it's changing how manufacturers, like monk, or conducting business muted on blanks will stay in the long term. and i suspect that companies will have to find a new balance between speed and cost efficiency and their supply chains on the one hand and crisis resilience. on the other, one of the nuns i to about him all he's infested, kind of rethinking logistics will become key to reaching their profit goals.
