Euro Area Composite PMI  2012-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI fell to 54.1 in September of 2018 from a preliminary estimate of 54.2 and 54.5 in August. The reading pointed to the weakest growth in private sector activity in four months as manufacturing rose the least since September of 2016 (53.2 from 54.6) while growth in the services sector was the highest in three months (54.7 from 54.4). New work slowed; backlogs of work increased for the fortieth month although at a modest pace in part restricted by a further expansion of workforce. On the price front, input cost inflation remained sharp and was slightly higher than in August and output prices also increased at a firmer rate. Finally, business confidence improved from August but remained among the lowest in the past two years amid geopolitical and trade concerns. Composite Pmi in the Euro Area is reported by Markit Economics.
