Im Jahresdurchschnitt 2017 lag die Cash-Flow-Umsatz-Relation in der österreichischen Sachgütererzeugung mit 10,6% neuerlich deutlich über dem Vorjahreswert von 10,2% (2016). Gemäß der WIFO-Schätzung für das Jahr 2018 stagnierte sie jedoch. Im Jahr 2019 dürfte die Cash-Flow-Quote gemäß der Schätzung mit einem dynamischen panelökonometrischen Modell für die Branchen der Sachgütererzeugung zurückgehen.

In 2017, at 10.6 percent, the average cash-flow-to-sales ratio for the Austrian manufacturing industry was again significantly higher than in the previous year (10.2 percent). According to the WIFO estimate it however stagnated in 2018.
