Italy's construction PMI fell to 56.6 in September from an historic 65.2 in August of 2021, pointing to the eighth straight month of expansion in the sector, although momentum eased markedly since August. On a quarterly basis, the figure averaged at 59.2 during the three months ending September, a level not seen since the first quarter of 2001. New orders eased slightly from August's peak, driven mostly by strong client demand and government tax relief schemes, while staffing levels expanded at the fastest pace since early 2002. However, intense supply disruptions, namely material shortages-related lengthening of supply lead times, weighed down on sentiment. Looking ahead, confidence levels among construction firms edged up, backed by hopes of a sustained economic recovery, ongoing tax relief schemes, and strong demand. source: Markit Economics

Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month based on data collected mid-month. For each of the indicators the ‘Report' shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of higher/better responses and lower/worse responses, and the ‘diffusion' index. This index is the sum of the positive responses plus a half of those responding ‘the same'. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease.
