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

The IHS Markit Italy Services PMI fell to 52.6 in August of 2018 from 54 in July and lower than market expectations of 53.1. Although pointing to a solid growth in the services sector and extending the current period of expansion to 27 months, the latest increase in activity matched the 2018 lows seen in March and April. New business rose at a slightly faster rate, but growth was in part driven by ongoing discounting and higher workloads led to a rise in employment. On the other hand, output prices fell for the seventh month amid reports of increasingly competitive market conditions while input cost rose. Finally, business confidence fell to its lowest level since June of 2013, due to slower growth, concerns over the direction of government policy and ongoing difficulties accessing credit to fund investment. Services PMI in Italy is reported by Markit Economics.
