The IHS Markit Italy Construction PMI increased to 50.5 in December of 2020 from 49.8 in November, pointing to the first expansion in the construction sector in 3 months, mainly due to government tax relief schemes and a greater number of working sites. Output rose in both the housing and civil engineering sub-sectors. December data also highlighted sustained growth of order book volumes, extending the current sequence of increase to seven months, due to the government ecobonus scheme. Also, COVID-19 restrictions and subsequent material shortages continued to disrupt supply chains however, as average lead times for inputs lengthened markedly again. Input costs rose the most since February of 2019 due to shortages at suppliers and higher costs for raw materials. Finally, business confidence strengthened and was slightly higher than the historical series average, amid optimism with government tax relief schemes and hopes of a robust economic recovery. source: Markit Economics

Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. For each of the indicators the ‘Report' shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of higher/better responses and lower/worse responses, and the ‘diffusion' index. This index is the sum of the positive responses plus a half of those responding ‘the same'. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease.
