The S&P Global France Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.4 in June of 2022 from 54.6 in the prior month, revised upwards from the preliminary estimate of 51. It was the lowest figure since December of 2020, as manufacturing output contracted for the first time since October of last year, while new orders fell at the sharpest rate since November of 2020. Surveyors cited lower demand as clients were hesitant with uncertain economic conditions and higher prices. As intakes of new work fell sharply, manufacturers made inroads into backlogs of work, resulting in outstanding business levels dropping to an 18-month low. In the price front, inflationary pressures eased slightly from the previous month, although still high. Meanwhile, the recent hiring trend remained positive, despite at a slower rate. Looking forward, rising costs and recession fears pressured business confidence to its lowest in over two years. source: Markit Economics
