The S&P Global Greece Manufacturing PMI edged down to 53.8 in May of 2022 vs. 54.8 in April, to a 25-months low, reflecting subdued demand conditions. New orders stayed unchanged compared with April, while new export orders expanded at only a marginal pace, as the war in Ukraine weighed on export growth. Output registered an increase showing the softest growth in the current 14-month sequence of growth. At the same time, input inflation pressure was historically elevated as prices of fuel, energy, and material costs continued to grow significantly, however, showing ease to the lowest level since last August. The cost growth lowered input buying activity, and it was the first contraction since February 2021. On the employment side, Greek firms expanded their workforce numbers in the last month. Finally, optimism levels improved, achieving the strongest in three months as some companies were waiting for price stabilization, new investments, and higher client demand. source: Markit Economics

Greek Factory Activity Improves Slightly in April
The S&P Global Greece Manufacturing PMI inched up 54.8 in April of 2022, up from an 11-month low of 54.6 in the previous March, reflecting a marginal increase in output and new orders, helped by an improvement in export orders, although many producers said soaring selling prices dampened client demand. Also, production faced intense headwinds from historically elevated input price inflation, as firms were faced with higher prices of materials, such as plastics, chemicals and metals, alongside rising costs of transportation and fuel. Meanwhile, factories continued to add new workers, although the rate of job creation softened to a 7-month low. Looking ahead, optimism levels were at the lowest since October 2020, with the war in Ukraine and prices at the forefront of concerns.

Greek Factory Activity at 11-Month Low
The S&P Global Greece Manufacturing PMI inched down to an 11-month low of 54.6 in March of 2022, down from 57.8 in the previous February, as output expanded at the softest pace in a year amid a weaker rise in new orders. In March, foreign demand also softened, with export orders falling for the first time in twelve months while total sales increased at the slowest pace in the current 12-month growth sequence. Meanwhile, the rate of job creation accelerated amid efforts to reduce backlogs of work. On the price front, input costs rose to a near-record on the heels of the Russia-Ukraine war, while selling prices at Greek goods producers rose at the sharpest pace since the series began. Given the above, business confidence slipped to a 16-month low in March.
