The IHS Markit US Services PMI was revised lower to 56.0 in February 2019 from a preliminary estimate of 56.2 and compared to January's final 54.2. The latest reading pointed to the strongest pace of expansion in the service sector since July, as new business rose the most since last October, amid more robust client demand and the opening of new facilities, and new export order growth was the highest for nine months. In addition, the rate of job creation was the quickest for five months and backlogs of work increased to the greatest extent since May 2018. On the price front, input cost inflation accelerated from January's 22-month low and was the highest since last November on higher raw material and fuel prices, tariffs and higher interest rates. The rate of charge inflation also picked up. Looking ahead, service providers were less upbeat towards the year-ahead outlook for business activity. Services PMI in the United States is reported by Markit Economics.
