The IHS Markit Brazil Composite PMI decreased to 44.5 in April of 2021 from 45.1 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the fourth straight contraction in private sector activity and at the quickest pace since last June amid tight COVID-19 restrictions. The further weakness in the services sector (PMI at 42.9 vs 44.1 in March) more than offset modest growth in manufacturing (PMI at 52.3 vs 52.8). Both new orders and employment declined further. Meanwhile, input costs and output charges continued to increase sharply and to multi-year highs. Looking forward, business sentiment was the weakest since June 2020. source: Markit Economics

Brazil Private Sector Contracts the Most in 9 Months
The IHS Markit Brazil Composite PMI decreased sharply to 45.1 in March of 2021 from 49.6 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the third straight contraction in private sector activity and at the quickest pace since last June. The fastest fall in services activity for eight months (PMI at 44.1 vs 47.1 in February) was accompanied by the slowest growth in manufacturing for nine months (PMI at 52.8 vs 58.4). New orders and employment continued to decline significantly. On the price front, the rate of input cost inflation reached a new record in March. Meantime, aggregate selling prices rose at a softer, albeit still sharp, pace. Looking forward, business sentiment was at a nine month-low and below the series average, dampened by increased concerns over the spike in COVID-19 cases and the re-introduction of restrictions.

Brazil Private Sector Returns To Contraction
The IHS Markit Brazil Composite PMI decreased to 48.9 in January of 2021 from 53.5 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the first contraction in private sector activity since July, as the services sector shrank the most in six months (PMI at 47 vs 51.1 in December) while manufacturing activity growth slowed noticeably (PMI at 56.5 vs 61.5). A renewed decline in new work intakes caused the first reduction in output for six months and further job shedding. On the price front, the rate of input inflation softened to a four-month low, but was stronger than any seen prior to the COVID-19 crisis. The rate of charge inflation matched that seen in December, thereby remaining marked and among the strongest seen since composite data became available in March 2007. Looking ahead, business sentiment weakened compared to December.
