Japan Services PMI  2013-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

The Nikkei Services PMI in Japan unexpectedly increased to 51.9 in January of 2018 from 51.2 in a month earlier and beating market consensus of 49.9. It was the highest reading since October 2017, as new orders quickened for first time in three months, confidence reached its highest since May 2013 and employment continued to grow. Meanwhile, the level of outstanding business went up, with companies suggesting that staff shortages had contributed to an accumulation in backlogs of work. Elsewhere, input cost inflation accelerated to the fastest rate since August 2008, mainly due to higher food and fuel expenses. However, demand growth spurred on firms to raise output prices at the steepest pace since May 2014. Services Pmi in Japan is reported by Markit Economics.
