The S&P Global India Services PMI declined to 57.2 in January 2023 from December’s six-month high of 58.5, below market forecasts of 58.1, due to softer rises in output and new orders. Despite falling from December, the latest figure remained above its long-run average (53.5) and indicated a sharp rate of growth, amid favourable economic conditions, accommodative demand and marketing efforts supported sales. However, the rise in new orders was centred on the domestic market, as international orders declined. Meanwhile, the pace of job creation was little-changed, and the joint-weakest in the current eight-month sequence of expansion, with backlogs of work increasing further. On the pricing front, input cost inflation eased to a two-year low, while output cost inflation slowed to a ten-month low and below average seen since the survey started in December 2005. Looking ahead, business sentiment deteriorated to a six-month low amid forecasts no change in activity from current levels. source: Markit Economics
