UK Services Sector Narrowly Escapes Contraction
The S&P Global/CIPS UK Services PMI was revised sharply lower to 50.9 in August of 2022 from a preliminary estimate of 52.5, the softest expansion in services activity in 18 months as inflationary pressures and the cost-of-living squeeze resulted in heightened economic uncertainty and reduced client confidence. The latest reading showed that inflows of new business rose at a much softer pace, with growth down to an over one-year low as sky-high inflation and growing recessionary fears continued to curb domestic and overseas demand. Meanwhile, the labor market remained resilient despite such macro headwinds. Firms reported higher operating costs despite input inflation easing slightly to an eight-month low. As a result, firms continued to pass on these costs to clients, resulting in a surge in output charges. Finally, confidence about the future was again historically subdued.
