Germany Composite PMI  2013-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit Germany Composite PMI fell to 53.1 in May of 2018 from 54.6 in April, well below market expectations of 54.7, preliminary estimates showed. The reading pointed to the slowest expansion in private sector activity since September of 2016 as both manufacturing (56.8 from 58.1) and services (52.1 from 53) eased. Some anecdotal evidence suggested that the timing of public holidays during the month had led to workers taking days off to bridge the holidays and weekends. Still, the Composite PMI decreased in the past four straight months from a near seven-year high at the start of the year. New orders and employment rose at softer rates; cost pressures intensified with input inflation recording the second-highest rate in over seven years; and output inflation eased. Also, firms' confidence towards the year-ahead outlook for activity fell to an 18-month low. Composite Pmi in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
