The IHS Markit Czech Republic Manufacturing PMI fell to 49 in June of 2022, from 52.3 in the prior month, worse than market estimates of 51.5. The latest reading pointed to the first contraction in the country's manufacturing sector since August of 2020, albeit only marginally. Output fell at the fastest pace since May of 2020 as the rate of decline in new orders was sharp and the quickest for two years, with inflation and supplier delays weighing on client demand. New export orders also decreased significantly, reflecting inflationary pressures in international markets. Employment shrank for the first time since September of 2020 and purchasing activity went down. On the price front, the rate of input cost inflation remained historically elevated in June, despite slowing to a 16-month low. The rate of charge inflation was also the softest in a year. Looking forward, business sentiment slipped to the second-lowest in two years in June, due to concerns over prices. source: Markit Economics
