The IHS Markit Germany Construction PMI rose to 51.3 in November 2018 from a seven-month low of 49.8 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to a modest rate of growth in the construction sector supported by a rebound in homebuilding and commercial construction work while civil engineering contracted. New orders expanded the most since February and the pace of job creation picked up. On the price front, input cost inflation rose to a 13-month high amid rising transport costs, and in particular the impact of new road toll charges. Looking ahead, business confidence towards the outlook for activity over the next 12 months improved slightly in November despite concerns over a slowdown in the automotive sector.
