The IHS Markit France Construction PMI edged up to 42.8 in November of 2020 from 42.7 in the previous month. Still, the latest reading pointed to the fifth consecutive monthly contraction in construction activity due to the reintroduction of coronavirus restrictions to curb a second wave of infections. Declines were observed across all segments: commercial projects, civil engineering works and house building. New orders declined at the quickest pace in six months while the rate of workforce contraction eased substantially from October's five-month record and was only marginal overall. Also, purchasing activity decreased for the fifth straight month. On the price front, input price inflation accelerated from October, but remained historically subdued. Looking forward, firms showed pessimism towards the 12-month business outlook, with some respondents expecting a further decline in activity amid the impact of COVID-19 on upcoming projects. source: Markit Economics
