Eurozone Service Sector Growth at 6-Month Low
The IHS Markit Eurozone Services PMI was revised slightly lower to 54.6 in October 2021, from a preliminary estimate of 54.7 and below September’s final 56.4. The latest reading pointed to the slowest growth in the services sector since April. New business growth slowed fractionally, although increased tourism and greater flexibility towards international travel reportedly boosted overseas demand. The strong growth trend in service sector employment continued into October, with staffing levels rising at the quickest pace since October 2007. As a result, the rate of backlog accumulation was its slowest since April. Inflationary pressures continued to build as service providers registered the strongest increases in both costs and selling prices for just over 21 years.
