The S&P Global Egypt PMI was at 47.0 in May 2022, compared with 46.9 a month earlier. This was the 18th straight month of drop in private sector activity, with the gauge for output continuing to post below the neutral of 50.0, while new orders fell the most since June 2020. At the same time, employment shrank for the 7th in as many months, and backlogs of work dropped for the fourth month running. Delivery times worsened for the seventh straight month, as input buying continued to fall. On prices, input cost inflation accelerated to the highest print in six months, on the impact of the Ukraine war on commodity prices, as well as increased import costs due to supply shortages and a higher US dollar value. Selling prices, meantime, rose at a faster rate, but the uptick was only modest. Finally, sentiment slipped to the second-lowest on record after having reached an all-time low in March, due to concerns that inflationary pressures will limit business growth. source: Markit Economics

Egypt Non-Oil Private Sector Shrinks for 17th Month
The S&P Global Egypt PMI edged up to 46.9 in April 2022 from March's 21-month low of 46.5 while marking the 17th straight month of contraction, amid persistent supply issues and geopolitical tensions. Output fell sharply, and new orders shrank for the eighth month running that ran parallel with a drop in export sales. Also, firms continued to cut their buying activity and slashing employment at the fastest rate in a year. Meantime, many companies had a degree of spare capacity, as indicated by a modest fall in backlogs of work. At the same time, businesses reported longer wait times for inputs as some vendors were forced to delay deliveries. On inflation, input cost was strong and remained above the average in 2021, on the impact of war in Ukraine and a devaluation of the pound. However, selling prices went up the least since July 2021. Finally, sentiment improved from March's record low but stayed weak by historical standards, with firms expecting price pressures to remain severe.

Egypt Non-Oil Private Sector PMI Down to 21-Month Low
The S&P Global Egypt PMI fell to 46.5 in March 2022 from 48.1 in the prior month, pointing to the lowest reading since June 2020. The latest print also marked the 16th straight month of contraction in the non-oil private sector, amid the effects of the war in Ukraine. Egyptian firms during the month suffered the worst declines in output, new orders and stocks of purchases since the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, employment numbers fell for the fifth month running, but firms were able to reduce their backlogs of work for a second straight month. Meantime, purchases prices subsequently rose at a sharp pace that was much quicker than February's seven month low on the back of the 14% devaluation of the Egyptian pound on March 21st, while selling charges went up only modestly. Finally, sentiment hit its lowest since the series began in April 2012, due to mounting worries over inflation and a prolonged crisis in eastern Europe.
