The S&P Global United Arab Emirates PMI increased to 55.6 in May 2022 from 54.6 in the prior month, pointing to the 18th straight month of rises and the strongest growth in five months. Output rose at the fastest pace since last December, while overall new orders expanded faster, with both domestic and foreign demand rising. Also, employment gained at the steepest pace in seven months, but was notably insufficient to avoid constraints on business capacity, as backlogs of work accumulated the most in eight months. Meantime, buying levels slowed, partly linked to firms drawing down inventories instead of buying new materials amid increased caution over spending. On the price front, input cost inflation accelerated to the sharpest recorded for three-and-a-half years, while output charges declined after increasing for the first time in nine months in the prior month. Looking ahead, confidence improved slightly, but was weak compared to the survey trend. source: Markit Economics
