The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI was revised slightly higher to 56.2 in September of 2021 from a preliminary of 56.1, still pointing to the slowest growth in private sector activity in five months and marking a further retreat from the 15-year peak recorded in July as shortages of inputs impeded both manufacturing and service sector output. There were also softer rates of expansion in both new orders and employment, while businesses’ output expectations were the least optimistic since February. Meanwhile, inflationary trends moved higher in September, with input prices rising at the joint-fastest rate on record (since July 1998). Output prices subsequently rose at a pace which was only surpassed by those seen in June and July. source: Markit Economics

Euro Area Composite PMI at 5-Month Low
The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI was revised slightly higher to 56.2 in September of 2021 from a preliminary of 56.1, still pointing to the slowest growth in private sector activity in five months and marking a further retreat from the 15-year peak recorded in July as shortages of inputs impeded both manufacturing and service sector output. There were also softer rates of expansion in both new orders and employment, while businesses’ output expectations were the least optimistic since February. Meanwhile, inflationary trends moved higher in September, with input prices rising at the joint-fastest rate on record (since July 1998). Output prices subsequently rose at a pace which was only surpassed by those seen in June and July.

Euro Area Private Sector Growth Slows to 5-Month Low
The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI went down to 56.1 in September of 2021 from 59 in August, below market forecasts of 58.5, preliminary estimates showed. The reading pointed to the slowest growth in private sector activity in 5 months, reflecting the peaking of demand in the second quarter, supply chain bottlenecks and concerns over the ongoing pandemic. Business expectations for the coming year were also knocked by rising worries over the impact of the Delta variant on demand and supply chains, contributing to a further moderation in the rate of job creation from July’s 21-year peak. Firms’ costs meanwhile rose at the fastest rate in 21 years as demand again outstripped supply, with price rises increasingly feeding through from manufacturing to services.

Eurozone Private Sector Growth Slows in August
The IHS Markit Eurozone Composite PMI was revised lower to 59.0 in August 2021, from a preliminary estimate of 59.5 and compared with July’s 15-year peak of 60.2. Still, the latest reading signaled another considerable month-on-month expansion in business activity, with service sector output expanding at the second-fastest rate since mid-2006 and manufacturing production growth remaining sharp, but slowing to its weakest in six months. New work intakes at Euro Area businesses continued to increase at a solid pace and the pace of job creation was only marginally weaker than July’s near 21-year high. On the price front, input costs increased at a rate that remained close to the one seen in July, which was the fastest since 2000, while charge inflation eased for the first time since fees started rising again in February, but remained strong overall. Finally, business confidence eased to a five-month.
