The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Services PMI fell to 50.2 in June 2019 from 51 in the previous month, missing market expectations of 51. The latest reading pointed to the softest expansion in the services sector in three months, amid sluggish domestic economic conditions and higher risk aversion due to ongoing Brexit uncertainty. New orders decreased for the fifth time in the past six months and backlogs of work fell for the longest period recorded since 2011. Meanwhile, job growth has been recorded in three of the past four months, linked to staff recruitment to long-term business expansion plans. On the price front, input price inflation accelerated boosted by higher transportation costs and wage pressures while output prices rose at the second-slowest rate since June 2017 due to competition for new work. Finally, confidence dropped amid domestic political uncertainty and concerns that subdued global economic conditions would continue to hold back corporate spending. Services PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
