The IHS Markit Germany Services PMI was revised slightly lower to 53 in January of 2019 from a preliminary of 53.1 but remained above 51.8 in December. However, it was still the second-lowest in the past eight months and below the average of 54.2 recorded since the current upturn began in mid-2013. New business rose only marginally and at the slowest pace for over three-and-a-half years, mainly due to a decline in new work received from abroad amid heightened uncertainty. Also, backlogs of work fell the most since May of 2016; employment remained solid although eased for the fourth month; input charges increased the most since March of 2011, partially due to wage pressures; and output prices also went up. Finally, optimism was slightly stronger in January, although confidence was still the second-weakest in over two years, amid concerns over a slowdown in the economy, Brexit and a lack of suitable candidate availability Services PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
