The S&P Global Germany Construction PMI fell sharply to 45.4 in May of 2022 from 46.0 in April, pointing to the second consecutive contraction in the construction sector since last August. There were decreases in activity across all three broad construction categories, with firms noting that persistent supply-chain bottlenecks and a declining intake of new work dampened activity. At the same time, another sharp rise in the cost of building materials and higher interest rates were both headwinds to demand. Meanwhile, input costs continued to increase to levels not seen since last year’s survey-record highs, while back-to-back decreases were recorded in employment. Finally, business expectations were at their lowest since the initial COVID shutdowns in the spring of 2020, weighed down by concerns over acute price pressures, material shortages, and greater client caution due to the uncertain economic environment. source: Markit Economics

A reading of below 50.0 indicates that the construction activity is generally declining, above 50.0 that it is generally expanding and exactly 50.0 indicates no change on the level recorded the previous month.

Germany Construction Activity Slows Sharply
The S&P Global Germany Construction PMI fell to 50.9 in March of 2022 from 54.9 in February, pointing to the lowest expansion in the construction sector in 3 months. There was a slowdown in activity growth and a decline in new orders amid elevated levels of uncertainty, fresh supply disruption and heightened inflationary pressures. The slowdown was led by the residential sector, which after recording strong growth in the prior two months (including a four-year high in January) registered a renewed contraction. Building companies also faced the steepest rise in input costs for seven months, alongside a record increase in subcontractor rates. The Ukraine war served to heighten constructors' concerns about supply, prices, and demand for investment, leading expectations to fall sharply to their lowest since May 2020.
