Swedish Service Sector Growth Lowest in Over 2 Years
The Services PMI in Sweden fell to 54.3 in November 2022, the lowest reading since June 2020 and slipping from a downwardly revised 56.6 in the previous month. The downturn was considerably due to declines from business volume and delivery times, pulling the index down by a combined 2.4 points, along with order intake which weighed by 0.6 points. Meanwhile, the employment index added 0.7 points, as the labor market continued to strengthen in the services sector. On the price front, the input price index dropped to 71.1 from 80.4 in October, but remained high compared to its historical average of 57.9. The PMI analyst at Swedbank noted that the economy continued to move downward but remained in the growth zone supported by strong employment, with an increased risk of setbacks further down the line as companies lowered production and the slowdown in order intakes.
