The S&P Global Australia Services PMI was revised slightly higher to 47.6 in November of 2022 from a preliminary of 47.2, but continued to point to the biggest decline in services sector activity since January. Demand for Australian services fell at the sharpest pace in over a year, due to a weaker economic backdrop, flooding issues and as a result of rising interest rates. Foreign demand performed no better, similarly declining for a second straight month. Capacity issues also weighed on activity as labour shortages continued to be reported, despite firms hiring at an above-average pace as they sought to re-establish pre-pandemic workforce levels. Moreover, vendor performance also deteriorated amid supply chain issues, input and manpower constraints. Also, input prices rose at the fastest pace in three months as steeper wages and fuel while selling prices rose at a softer pace. Finally, business confidence eased to the third lowest on record. source: Markit Economics

Australia Services PMI Hits Lowest Since January
The S&P Global Australia Services PMI tumbled to 47.2 in November of 2022 from 49.3 in the previous month, preliminary data showed. It was the lowest reading since January and the second straight month of contraction of the service sector, with business activity and new orders volumes decreasing further amid weak domestic and foreign demand due to a gloomy growth outlook. Still, firms continued to hire new staff to rebuild their labor capacity to pre-pandemic levels. On the price front, input costs increased while companies passed them down to customers. Finally, business confidence deteriorated.

Australia Services PMI Falls to 49.3
The S&P Global Australia Services PMI eased to 49.3 in October of 2022, from 50.6 in September, to indicate the first contraction of the service sector since January. A renewed deterioration in demand for services underpinned the fall in business activity. Firms blamed the decline in demand on rising interest rates and greater market uncertainty, though foreign demand continued to expand. Firms also continued to hire despite the decline in order book volumes with some intent on rebuilding their labour capacity to pre-Covid levels. Price pressures meanwhile persisted for Australian service providers. Selling price inflation picked up from September as firms reported passing on higher costs to clients. Overall business confidence in the service sector deteriorated in October.
