The IHS Markit Ireland Services PMI declined to 57.2 in October of 2018 from 58.7 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the weakest pace of expansion in services activity since March, as both new orders and new export orders rose at a softer pace in October. Additionally, output went up less for three of the four sectors, the exception being Financial Services. On the other hand, job creation growth accelerated for the fifth straight month, reaching a ten-month high. On the price front, input cost inflation accelerated and output prices increased at a faster pace than in September, as firms reported passing on increased business costs such as insurance rates to customers. Looking ahead, companies remained optimistic in the year ahead, mostly due to an improvement in expectations regarding Irish economy and increased customer orders. Services PMI in Ireland is reported by Markit Economics.
