China Services PMI  2012-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

The Caixin China General Services PMI unexpectedly rose to a three-month high of 53.1 in September of 2018 from 51.5 in the previous month and beating market consensus of 51.4. New orders increased the most since June, pointing to some improvement in demand. Meantime, employment contracted for the first time in over two years, while outstanding workloads continued to fall. On the price front, input costs rose at the steepest rate since January, which could squeeze company profit margins. According to panelists, higher prices for fuel, raw materials and greater staffing costs all underpinned the latest increase in operating expenses. Meantime, firms signaled broadly no change to their output charges, with some mentioning greater efforts to remain competitive. Sentiment slipped amid concerns of ongoing global trade tensions and more restrictive environmental policies. Services PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
