Lower demand and increased competition
In Danmarks Nationalbank's lending survey for the 3rd quarter 2019, 5 of the 17 surveyed banks report that they have experienced lower loan demand from corporate customers compared to the previous quarter. In particular, the demand from new corporate customers has been lower, according to the banks. The banks report that lower demand applies to large as well as small and medium-sized corporate customers. At the same time, the banks report increased competition for these customers.
