The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI went up to 30.5 in May 2020 from 13.6 in April and beating market consensus of 25, a preliminary estimate showed. The latest reading pointed to the third sharpest contraction in the private sector since series began, as the coronavirus pandemic continued to have a severe impact on the economy. Both manufacturing output and services activities shrank at a softer pace. The job shedding rate eased modestly compared to April’s record and backlogs of work dropped at the fastest pace on record. New orders fell to the third-greatest extent ever seen by the surveys. On the price front, input costs decreased markedly and average prices charged for goods and services declined for a third successive month as companies offered discounts to help stimulate sales. Looking by region, output fell less across France and Germany, as well as collectively across the rest of the region, from the unprecedented downturns seen in April. Lastly, sentiment remained weak.
