Germany Factory Activity Shrinks More than Initially Expected
The S&P Global/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 49.1 in August of 2022 from a preliminary of 49.8, pointing to a second consecutive month of falling factory activity, and the worse since June of 2020. A sustained downturn in new orders weighed on production levels and slow the rate of job creation at factories and stocks rose. Amid signs of a further easing of supply-side constraints, the rate of cost inflation retreated further from its recent historic highs, although it was still elevated due to pressure from increased energy costs in particular. Firms were less pessimistic about the outlook than the month before, although concerns about high inflation environment, uncertainty in the energy market, and economic slowdown risks weighed.
