The IHS Markit Egypt PMI was down to a five-month low of 48.7 in October 2021 from 46.9 in the previous month, amid a widening of the supply chain crisis. A lack of inputs led to a solid contraction in output and the sharpest increases in both costs and charges for just over three years. Meantime, export sales fell the most in 17 months on the back of a marginal drop in new orders as many firms continued to report an improvement in sales, particularly in tourism hotspots. On the positive side, employment numbers picked up to the greatest extent in two years. Despite this, backlogs of work increased for the third time in four months, on input shortages. Finally, confidence weakened substantially after climbing to a record high in September, due to concerns that high inflation could lead to a slump in demand and reverse the economic recovery. source: Markit Economics
