The IHS Markit United Arab Emirates PMI fell sharply to 51.6 in August 2019 from 55.1 in July. The latest PMI reading pointed to the slowest increase in the non-oil private sector in eight years, as output growth weakened to an over 6-year low. Also, new orders and exports rose at a solid, but relatively subdued pace. Meanwhile employment was broadly unchanged, ending a five-month sequence of marginal rise. Also, firms scaled back buying activity, leading to a slight reduction in inventories of purchases. On the price front, input cost was unchanged, as staff costs did not alter from that seen in July, while purchase prices recorded only a marginal uptick. Meanwhile, selling prices fell the most since April, but still modest, on the back of strong competitive pressures in recent months. Looking ahead, sentiment remained strong, with firms expecting a boost to demand, in particular due to the Expo 2020 and improving market conditions.
