The S&P Global United Arab Emirates increased to 56.6 in October 2022 from 56.1 in the previous month, amid faster uplifts in both output and new orders. The strengthening of demand conditions brought additional capacity pressures, leading firms to increase their headcounts at the sharpest rate since July 2016 and purchase inputs to the greatest extent for over three years. Meanwhile, export orders grew the least since the start of the year, reflecting global economic headwinds. At the same time, backlogs of work increased sharply, linked to existing projects and pandemic-related shipping delays. Turning on prices, firms noted that reductions in costs for items such as fuel, steel, and transport had kept inflation mild. Meantime, output charges fell for the sixth month running, due to efforts from producers to maintain a competitive landscape. Finally, business confidence weakened and remained soft by historical standards. source: Markit Economics

UAE Non-Oil Private Sector Growth Stays Robust
The S&P Global United Arab Emirates dropped to 56.1 in September 2022 from August's over 3-year high of 56.7, amid global recession risks. New orders growth ticked down slightly from a 9-month peak in August, but remained sharp and was faster than the trend observed since the survey began. Also, sales from abroad went up modestly on the back of a further rise in employment and reports that buying level went up the most in more than three years. Delivery times improved, on better demand conditions and faster payments to suppliers. On the price front, input costs rose slightly after a renewed fall in August, with reductions in the price of energy and other commodities helping to keep cost inflation subdued compared to H1 of the year. Subsequently, output charges were reduced for the fifth month in a row as businesses looked to further aid sales growth through competitive pricing. Finally, confidence strengthened for the first time since June, reflecting hopes of stronger order books.

UAE Non-Oil Private Sector PMI Rises to Over 3-Year Peak
The S&P Global United Arab Emirates rose to 56.7 in August of 2022 from 55.4 in July, pointing to the highest print since June 2019. The latest reading also marked the 21st straight month of growth in the non-oil private sector, as output growth strengthened, while new orders rose the most in over 3 years linked to improved client demand. Firms also expanded input purchasing and employment to stronger degrees, with growth in the former up to a 3-year high. However, export sales went up the least since January. On prices, input cost fell for the first time in seven months, due to lower fuel prices and a softer rise in wage cost; while output charges dropped for the fourth straight month, with firms continuing to seek discount opportunities. Vendor performance improved due to faster payments to suppliers and improved availability of inputs. Finally, sentiment hit its lowest in near 1-1/2 years, on increased uncertainty about the health of the global economy.
