The S&P Global Australia Flash Composite PMI declined to 52.5 in May 2022 from a final reading of 55.9 in April, marking the 4th consecutive month of expansion for the private sector but at the slowest pace in the current sequence. Private sector output growth eased in May, weighed by a contraction of manufacturing output while services business activity remained in expansion. Although the easing of COVID-19 restrictions continued to support private sector output expansion, issues around a COVID-related labor and supply crunch and domestic flooding affected manufacturing production in May. Overall demand nevertheless remained in growth across both the manufacturing and service sectors, supporting private sector workforce expansion in May. Private sector firms also continued to experience higher costs in May amid the war in Ukraine, lockdowns in China and domestic flooding, with input prices rising at the third fastest rate on record. source: Markit Economics
