Abstract: 
Die deutsche Gesamtwirtschaft hatte sich 2013 weniger dynamisch entwickelt als erwartet. Vor allem die Ausfuhren wuchsen nach hohen Wachstumsraten in den Vorjahren parallel zum gesamten Welthandel nur langsam. Davon waren auch die Industriebranchen Maschinenbau, Chemie und Elektrotechnik betroffen, während die Automobilindustrie weltweit kräftig wuchs. Die Bauindustrie ist dagegen weniger exportabhängig. Für 2014 rechnen die Industriebranchen mit einer nachhaltigen Besserung der Konjunktur, unter anderem weil sich die Wirtschaft in den Schwellenländern und in den USA beleben wird.
Abstract (Translated): 
The overall economic situation in 2013 showed less momentum than predicted. In particular, exports grew slowly as did global trade on the whole. The economic environment was difficult in the aftermath of the public debt and currency crisis in the euro zone. This is reflected in most of the industrial sectors. The construction industry is less dependent on exports than on weather, which reduced production last winter. Meanwhile, the automotive industry grew at an above average rate. The outlook for 2014 finds all industries predicting better performance than in 2013, but there are obstacles due to German policy 2013; the renewable energy act is one of them, as Utz Tillmann of the chemical industry points out. Klaus Mittelbach also looks critically at the turnaround in the German energy policy, but he hopes that the electronics industry will benefit from technological requirements.
