The S&P Global Italy Composite PMI rose to 49.6 in August of 2022 from 47.7 in the previous month, but still pointed the second consecutive decline in the Italian private sector. Activity fell further for the manufacturing sector (48 vs 48.5 in July), offsetting the slight rebound in the services sector (50.5 vs 48.4), as the decline in new orders were more pronounced among Italian factories while service providers saw a slight increase in production. Poorer demand conditions for both sectors led to reduced workloads at an aggregate level, reflecting a third consecutive drop in backlogs of work. At the same time, hiring activity picked up for both sectors, albeit at a slower pace. On the price front, input and charge inflation eased across the board, but remained high at a historical level. Looking forward, low demand conditions led business confidence to remain historically subdued. source: Markit Economics

Italy Composite PMI
The Italy Composite PMI is a weighted average of the Manufacturing Output Index and the Services Business Activity Index. Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. For each of the indicators the ‘Report' shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of higher/better responses and lower/worse responses, and the ‘diffusion' index. This index is the sum of the positive responses plus a half of those responding ‘the same'. A reading above 50 indicates that the services sector is generally expanding; below 50 indicates that it is generally declining.

Italy Private Sector Activity Declines
The S&P Global Italy Composite PMI fell to 47.7 in July of 2022 from 51.3 in the prior month, pointing to the first contraction in Italy’s private sector since January of 2021. Activity declined both in the manufacturing (48.5 vs 50.9 in June) and the services (48.4 vs 51.6) sectors, as the first decline in new work in 18 months pressured aggregate production to contract. The decrease was more pronounced for manufacturers, but still seen in a widespread manner. The dent in business activity drove firms to catch up on outstanding business, easing capacity pressures. In the meantime, firms continued to take in additional staff in July, albeit at the slowest pace in 15 months amid a reduced intake for manufacturers. Also, input inflation was seen broadly lower for both sectors, but remained well above the long term averages. Looking forward, geopolitical uncertainty and the negative outlook on the economy lowered business confidence to its lowest since May of 2020.

Italy Private Sector Growth Slows in June
The S&P Global Italy Composite PMI fell to 51.3 in June of 2022 from 52.4 in the prior month, signaling the 17th consecutive upturn in Italy’s private sector. While maintaining its expansionary trend, growth slowed both for the services sector (51.6 vs 53.7 in May) and the manufacturing sector (50.9 vs 51.9), which slipped to a 2-year low. Output in Italy’s private sector rose at the slowest pace since January, while aggregate growth of new work stalled as a sharp reduction in new orders among manufacturers offset a sustained level of new business for service providers. Still, job creation continued its upward trend, albeit at a slightly slower pace. On the price front, aggregate input costs rose at the second-fastest pace on survey record, nearly matching the peak seen in March. Looking forward, rising uncertainty and soaring prices pressured business confidence to 18-month lows for the Italian private sector.
