The au Jibun Bank Japan Composite PMI was at 50.2 in July 2022, compared with a flash print of 50.6 and after June's final figure of 53.0. The latest result marked the softest growth in private sector activity in the current five-month sequence of expansion, amid a resurgence of COVID-19 cases. The slowdown came amid a sharp moderation in services activity growth and the first fall in manufacturing output since February. New orders stalled after two straight months of rising, while the rate of job creation remained marginal. At the same time, backlogs were unchanged, an indication of easing pressure on capacity amid weaker demand. Positively, firms reported a slower rate of input price inflation for the first time since January, yet average cost burdens nonetheless increased at the second-fastest pace in the survey history. Looking ahead, sentiment softened, amid concerns of muted economic conditions and uncertainty stemming from inflation, the weaker yen, and the Ukraine war. source: Markit Economics

Japan Composite PMI Drops to 5-Month Low
The au Jibun Bank Japan Composite PMI fell to 50.6 in July of 2022 from a final 53.0 a month earlier, flash data showed. This was the softest pace of expansion in the private sector since a contraction in February, as factory activity rose the least in ten months and services growth was at a three-month low amid shortages of raw materials, rising energy and wage costs, and the weakening yen against the US dollar. Both new orders and employment increased at slower paces while export sales continued to fall. Positively, there was tentative evidence that price pressures were peaking, with the rate of input cost inflation easing for the first time in six months, yet remained rapid overall. This contributed to the slowest, albeit still solid, rise in output charges since April. Finally, sentiment weakened to a three-month low, due to concerns over surging prices as well as the prolonged impact of the Russia-Ukraine war.
