The services PMI in Sweden increased to 68.1 in April of 2022 from a downwardly revised 62.9 in March, pointing to the strongest growth in the sector since January, as all sub-indices increased. The largest increase came from business volume (64.9 vs 56.7), followed by employment (61.1 vs 54.7), new orders (62.7 vs 58.9), and delivery times (88.0 vs 85.5). The delivery times reached the second highest index level in the index's history, indicating a high demand pressure, amid supply disruptions and an increase in shortage of labor. Meanwhile, the index for suppliers' input goods prices remained at historically high levels (90.2 vs 91.1 in March). " Rapid cost increases and supply disruptions have so far not prevented the service sector from expanding while business plans remain expansionary and suggest a positive view of the growth prospects even though the downside risks have increased," said Jörgen Kennemar, who is responsible for PMI analysis at Swedbank. source: Swedbank

Sweden Services PMI Edges Lower to 68 in February
The services PMI in Sweden decreased to 68 in February of 2022 from 68.6 in January, but still pointed to a robust growth in the services sector. New orders eased the most among sub-indices (66.6 vs 68.4), followed by delivery times (80.6 vs 81.6) and business volume (65.4 vs 65.6) while employment rose to the highest level since 2018 (61 vs 59.6). Also, the index for suppliers' input goods prices declined slightly in February but remains at high levels (85.7 vs 85.2). "The risk of continued high input prices has increased with the war in Ukraine and the introduction of sanctions, which can also lead to renewed supply disruptions and increased production costs", says Jörgen Kennemar, responsible for the analysis of the purchasing managers' index.

Sweden Services PMI Rises in January
The services PMI in Sweden decreased to 68.6 in January of 2021 from an upwardly revised four-month low of 67.4 in December, pointing to the fifth highest reading in the survey’s history. All sub-indices saw increases in January, led by business volume, followed by order intake, employment, and delivery times. The latter was significant and remained at historically high levels. Lastly, input price inflation accelerated, due to upside pressures from supply chains. “The rise was broad and may receive further support when restrictions are lifted and the spread of omicron is reduced, which is reflected in the expansive business plans of service firms” said Jörgen Kennemar, who is responsible for PMI analysis at Swedbank.
