The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI was revised higher to 54.8 in August 2019 from a preliminary estimate of 54.4 and compared to July's six-month low of 54.5. Output and employment growth remained robust, while new orders rose only modestly and at the weakest rate since January, amid an accelerated drop in new work from abroad. Consequently, backlogs of work dropped for the first time since January and the rate of depletion was the quickest since May 2016. On the price front, input costs increased steeply and at a rate that was little-changed from the month before, and average prices charged were raised accordingly. Looking ahead, business sentiment reached the lowest since October 2014 on growing worries about the economy. Services PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
