Moody has also expected that investors may reduce their investment due to the losses they faced during the past years due to the failure of market interest rates. Moody has also predicted that revenue through hospitals has also slowed down and has been reduced to 1.6% in2017.

Another reason for the reduction in GDP is falling of the oil prices, which may reduce energy-related investment. In 2014-2015, it has fallen up to 4.4%. Non-defense aircraft orders were downgraded up to 21% while defense aircraft went down up to 59.3%. The orders related to core capital goods also went down.
