Swedish PMI for services leapt to 50.9 in December

Wednesday, 04 January 2012
The Swedish purchasers managers index (PMI) for the services sector leapt in December signalling some amount of recovery in economic activity in the sector. There is still a risk of a backlash which is believed to still persist.

Purchasing managers' index for services (PMI services) rose by 2.1 index points in December 2011 to 50.9 compared with 48.8 in November. This is the first time since September that the index is in the growth zone and that means autumn economic deterioration has slowed, according to Swedbank that publish the data


Sub-index for new orders accounted for the largest positive contribution to PMI, followed by employment and supplier delivery times. “Order books are, however, still below the 50 line, suggesting that the order situation in the service sector is fragile. Although employment growth in service firms is significantly slower than in the first half of 2011, it contributes positively to the Swedish labour market,” say the reports

Revised value of business plans for the next six months suggests that firms have become less pessimistic about the economic prospects. Uncertainty in the assessment is great, not least because the order books continue to shrink.

Index of suppliers' input prices rose to 54.2 in December, signalling rising cost pressures for service providers, although the trend had previously been declining during 2011, reports Swedbank.
