The Japan Services PMI (Purchasing Managers' Index) is based on data collected from a representative panel of over 400 private service sector companies based in Japan. The index tracks variables such as sales, employment, inventories and prices. A reading above 50 indicates that the services sector is generally expanding; below 50 indicates that it is generally declining.

Latest Updates

The au Jibun Bank Japan Services PMI was at 42.9 in August 2021, compared with the preliminary reading 43.5 and a final 47.4 a month earlier. The latest reduction was the fastest since May 2020, as a state of emergency remained in place to combat a steep rise in COVID-19 cases. New orders fell the most in 15 months, while export sales shrank at a steeper rate. More positively, employment levels increased for the sixth time in seven months as firms anticipating increased demand. At the same time, outstanding business eased the most since January. Prices data showed average cost burdens rising for the ninth time in as many months, with the rate of input cost inflation remained solid. This did not translate to prices charged, however, which were reduced for the first time in five months. Looking forward, sentiment was positive for the twelfth month in a row, yet eased to the joint-softest since January.
