The S&P Global Spain Services PMI went down to 53.8 in July of 2022 from 54 in June, the slowest expansion since March and above market expectations of 52. Growth of new work was registered for a sixth successive month, although the latest increase was modest. Whilst firms indicated that underlying sales remained positive, a slump in new business from abroad, there was some indication that tourism numbers remain lower-than-usual, and growing client hesitancy in committing to new work weighed on growth. Additional staff were again taken on, which enabled companies to broadly keep on top of overall workloads. However, inflation rates remained elevated, despite easing since June, and firms signaled growing concerns about elevated prices and wider economic instability.
