Spain Service Sector Growth Hits 5-Month High
The S&P Global Spain Services PMI rose to 57.1 in April 2022 from 53.4 in March and above market expectations of 55.9. The latest reading pointed to the third consecutive month of growth in services activity and at the quickest pace since last November. Both activity and new business increased at faster rates, as looser COVID-19 restrictions had helped to boost demand, largely from the domestic market. Also, employment grew solidly for the 13th month in a row, although the rate of growth softened. On the price front, inflationary pressures remained elevated, on account of energy bills plus expensive freight and supplier charges. Finally, confidence rebounded noticeably since March to an above-average level, as the strong uptick in activity driven by easing COVID-19 restrictions is expected to continue over the coming months.

Spain Service Sector Growth Eases More than Expected
The S&P Global Spain Services PMI recorded 53.4 in March 2022, down from 56.6 in February and below market expectations of 54.2. Growth rates of both activity and new business softened amid heightened uncertainty due to the war in Ukraine. A domestic transportation strike about high fuel prices added further challenges, with increased costs for energy, fuel and supplier goods reflected by survey record rises in both operating expenses and prices charged by suppliers. On the price front, operating costs rose for a twenty-second consecutive month, strongest ever recorded rise; and output prices increased for a twelfth successive month and the rate of inflation maintained its recent upward trend to also hit a survey record high. Finally, firms also signalled some hope that - as pandemic challenges dissipate - activity will continue to rise over the coming 12 months. However, confidence overall dropped quite noticeably since February.
