Japan Services PMI  2013-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

The Nikkei Services PMI in Japan fell to 51.6 in August of 2017 from 52 in July. It was the eleventh straight month of expansion in services activity, but the weakest since February 2017 as new work and activity increased at a slower pace. Backlogs of work went up for the ninth straight month and employment rose for the eighth consecutive month. On the price front, both output charges and input prices continued to increase broadly. Business sentiment remained positive, but dropped to over a year low due to concerns of competitive pressures and fears of weaker demand potentially undermining growth. Services Pmi in Japan is reported by Markit Economics.
