Italy's construction PMI rose to 58.6 in October from 56.6 in September of 2021, pointing to the ninth straight month of expansion in the sector and at one of the fastest rates in the series. Growth was broad-based across sub-sectors, led by a near-record performance in residential, followed by commercial activity and civil engineering. Main upward pressure came from a near-record rise in new work, driven by strong client demand and government tax relief schemes, while staffing levels expanded at the fastest pace in over two decades. However, intense supply disruptions, primarily material shortages, were behind one of the lengthiest supply delivery times on record and an unprecedented hike in input costs. Looking ahead, confidence levels among construction firms moderated to the lowest level since December 2020 but remained upbeat overall, backed by the current tax relief schemes and strong sales prospects. source: Markit Economics

Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. For each of the indicators the ‘Report' shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of higher/better responses and lower/worse responses, and the ‘diffusion' index. This index is the sum of the positive responses plus a half of those responding ‘the same'. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease.
