The Ulster Bank Construction PMI in Ireland rose to 56.9 in October 2021 from a five-month low of 56.3 a month earlier, pointing to the sixth straight month of growth. Work on commercial projects expanded sharply and at a steeper rate as COVID-19 curbs eased further (60.4 vs 56.7 in September), while civil engineering activity fell at a softer pace (48.3 vs 43.3). Meantime, the rate of growth in housing activity continued to soften from May's record (54.5 vs 59.8). New orders remained sharp, rising in each of the past seven months; buying levels stayed strong despite the rate of increase eased to a six-month low; and the rate of job creation quickened slightly. Respondents cited Brexit, pandemic disruption, and shortages of delivery drivers and materials as factors that contributed to a record lengthening of delivery times and record growth in input costs. Finally, sentiment ticked up, posting above the series average, amid predictions of pent-up demand over the coming year. source: Markit Economics
