Saudi Arabia Non-Oil Private Sector Growth Stays Robust
The S&P Global Saudi Arabia PMI fell to 55.7 in April 2022 from March's four-month high of 56.8 in the prior month but pointing to the 20th straight month of growth. Output rose the least since January; and new business gained at a softer rate, despite rises in both domestic and foreign orders. Meantime, buying levels and inventories both rose at the sharpest rate since December 2017, as firms sought to build stocks in the face of rising material prices. On top of that, the rate of job creation quickened to the fastest since June 2021 with backlogs falling the most in nine months. There was a marked improvement in input lead times, as companies sought quicker deliveries from their vendors. On prices, input cost rose solidly, linked to rising energy prices and supply shortages due to the war in Ukraine; while output price inflation accelerated and was above the series trend. Looking ahead, sentiment was at a three-month low, on worries whether growth in output can be sustained.
