The Stanbic Bank Uganda PMI declined to 51.5 in May of 2022 from April's of 53.9, signalling a tenth consecutive monthly expansion. The latest figure also marked the weakest expansion in the private sector since last December, amid reports that prices pressures had acted to limit demand. Both output and new orders continued to grow, with output increasing in the industry, services and wholesale & retail sectors, but declining in agriculture and construction. Meanwhile, both employment and purchasing activity rose, as new orders expanded, alongside improved supplier performance. On the price front, input prices accelerated, due to rises in prices of fuel, raw material, and wages. In response, firms raised their output charges for the ninth in as many months. Finally, business sentiment remained positive on predictions of new order growth and hopes for an alleviation of price pressures. source: Markit Economics
