The Italy Composite PMI is a weighted average of the Manufacturing Output Index and the Services Business Activity Index. 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'. A reading above 50 indicates that the services sector is generally expanding; below 50 indicates that it is generally declining.

Latest Updates

The IHS Markit Italy Composite PMI increased to 59.1 in August of 2021 from 58.6 in July, pointing to the strongest growth in private sector activity since June of 2006. The upturn was broad-based across sectors, with the rate of expansion in manufacturing accelerating on the month (60.9 vs 60.3 in July) and continuing to outpace that for services (58), although the latter nonetheless continued to rise at the strongest rate for 14 years. Central to the quicker overall rate of expansion was a further rapid rise in inflows of new work. New export orders rose at the fourth-strongest pace in the series history. Subsequently, firms continued to increase their workforce numbers in August. Employment rose for the fourth month running. On the price front, input cost inflation slowed from July's near 21-year high and private sector firms again upped their average charges.
