US Private Sector Activity Growth Slows in March
The IHS Markit US Composite PMI posted 59.1 in March of 2021, down slightly from 59.5 in February, to signal the second-fastest private sector upturn for six years, a preliminary estimate showed. Although capacity pressures stemming from extensive supply shortages constrained manufacturing output growth to the slowest for five months, goods producers reported the sharpest rise in new orders since June 2014. Service providers meanwhile recorded the steepest increase in new business for almost three years amid stronger client demand and looser coronavirus disease 2019 restrictions. The combined increase in manufacturing and service sector new orders was the strongest since September 2014. Business confidence picked up in March, running at a level rarely exceeded over the past seven years.

US February Composite PMI Revised Higher
The IHS Markit US Composite PMI was revised higher to 59.5 in February 2021, up from a preliminary estimate of 58.8, signaling the sharpest pace of expansion in the private sector activity since August 2014. Service sector output expanded by the most in over six-and-a-half years, while manufacturing production growth moderated, but remained among the highest seen over the past decade. Private sector new order growth was the fastest since April 2018, while employment rose only fractionally. On the price front, input cost inflation accelerated to the fastest since data collection began in October 2009. As a result, firms raised their selling prices at the second-steepest pace on record due to the partial pass-through of greater costs to clients. Finally, business confidence moderated from that seen in January.
