The S&P Global Brazil Services PMI fell to 51 in December 2022 from 51.6 in the prior month. It was the slowest pace of growth in 19 months, pressured by heightened political uncertainty while some firms halted activity during the football World Cup. Still, new business intakes rose quickly, while improved demand led to higher output levels. Employment, however, fell for the first time in 19 months, although slight overall. On the price front, companies surveyed said a stronger dollar, wage increases, rising interest rates, and higher prices for some materials drove input prices to accelerate. In turn, output charges increased as well, but at the softest pace in three months. Finally, hopes of contained inflation and looser monetary policy supported business confidence to remain optimistic. source: Markit Economics

Brazil Services PMI Falls to 18-Month Low
The S&P Global Brazil Services PMI fell to 51.6 from 54 in the prior month. It was the slowest pace of growth in 18 months, pressured by heightened market uncertainty. Both new orders and business activity expanded at the lowest rate in one year and a half, with firms able to secure new clients as political and economic turmoil curbed demand. Employment also rose at the slowest pace since June 2021 as increased hiring to keep up with the slight upturn in new business and replace voluntary leavers offset the reduced headcount to lower expenses. On the price front, companies surveyed said a weaker real and higher labor and transportation costs drove input prices to accelerate and halt a period of slowing inflation.
