Italy Services PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

The IHS Markit Italy Services PMI decreased to 52.6 in March of 2018 from 55 in February, while markets expected a smaller decline to 53.8. The reading pointed to the second consecutive slowdown in services activity and the most marked since October. Output, new orders and employment rose at a slower pace. Also, backlogs of work went up for the eighteenth straight month and at the greatest extent since August. On the price front, input cost inflation weakened further and output charges fell for the second month running, due to competitive pressures and efforts to increase sales. Finally, business confidence was sustained in March amid widespread expectations of an increase in demand and new work. However, some concerns were voiced about the effects of ongoing political instability on the country's economic performance. Services PMI in Italy is reported by Markit Economics.
