The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Construction PMI rose to 53.2 in October 2018 from a six-month low of 52.1 in the previous month and well above market expectations of 52.0. It was the second-highest reading in 16 months driven by the strongest growth in civil engineering since July 2017. Meanwhile, house building and commercial construction both increased at solid rates in October, albeit the weakest in seven and five months respectively. Still, new orders rose the least in five months and business expectations fell to a near six-year low amid uncertainty related to Brexit, while employment growth remained strong. On the price front, input cost inflation eased to a 27-month low. Construction Pmi in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
