The household saving rate in the euro area was at 13.7% in the second quarter of 2022, compared with 15.2% in the first quarter of 2022.

These data come from a first release of seasonally adjusted quarterly European sector accounts from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

At the same time, the household investment rate in the euro area remained nearly stable at 10.1% in the second quarter of 2022.

In the second quarter of 2022, the profit share of businesses (non-financial corporations) decreased slightly from 40.0% to 39.8% in the euro area.

The business investment rate in the euro area remained stable at 23.9% in the second quarter of 2022. The peaks of the business investment rate observed in 2015Q2, 2017Q2, 2019Q2, 2019Q4 and 2020Q1 are related to large imports of intellectual property products reflecting globalisation effects.
