Germany Construction Pmi  2013-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit Germany Construction PMI ticked up to 51.5 in August 2018 from July's four-month low of 50, as activity returned to growth with output increasing modestly across all three broad construction categories. Civil engineering activity rebounded after a downturn in July and rose by the most since January, while the rates of growth of both infrastructure and commercial activity were only modest. Meantime, the pace of job creation accelerated. In contrast, new orders declined for the first time in four months, partly linked to a lack of available resources to take on more new work. Also, capacity constraints were translated in longer lead times and sub-contractor availability showed another sharp decline. On the price front, input inflation was the quickest since October. Looking ahead, the degree of optimism among constructors was the lowest since November 2016. Construction Pmi in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
