Germany Private Sector Growth Falls Less than Expected
The IHS Markit Germany Composite PMI fell to 52 in November of 2020 from 55 in October, but above market forecasts of 50.4, flash estimates showed.

German Private Sector Activity Rises for 4th Month: PMI
The IHS Markit Germany Composite PMI was revised slightly higher to 55 in October of 2020 from a preliminary of 54.5. The reading pointed to the 4th straight month of growth in private sector activity, due to manufacturing (58.2 vs 56.4, the highest since March of 2018), while services went back to contraction (49.5 vs 50.6). Looking ahead, sentiment towards future output eased to the lowest since June. Manufacturing expectations weakened slightly but still remained highly positive, whereas services confidence ebbed more noticeably.

Manufacturing Supports German Private Sector
The IHS Markit Germany Composite PMI edged down to 54.5 in October of 2020 from 54.7 in September, above market expectations of 53.2. The reading pointed to a solid growth in private sector activity although at a slightly slower pace than in September, according to preliminary estimates. A further rise in manufacturing (58 vs 56.4, highest since April of 2018) helped to support growth. However, in a sign of a two-speed economy emerging, service providers recorded a modest decline in activity (48.9 vs 50.6, first fall in 4 months) amid new restrictions and heightened uncertainty due to a second wave of coronavirus cases. Looking ahead to activity in a year’s time, expectations weakened for the first time in seven months. Sentiment remained positive overall, with optimists continuing to outnumber pessimists, but the degree of confidence eased to the lowest since June as worries about COVID-19 weighed on the outlook, especially in the service sector

Germany Composite PMI Revised Higher in September
The IHS Markit Composite PMI for Germany was revised higher to 54.7 in September of 2020 from a preliminary of 53.7, with the Services PMI revised sharply higher to 50.6 from 49.1 while the Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly lower to 56.4 from 56.6. Still, the manufacturing growth was the steepest since July of 2018, sufficiently offsetting a slower rise in service business activity. Overall inflows of new business rose the most since January 2018. The steeper of the increases in new work at the sub-sector level was recorded among goods producers, who, unlike their services counterparts, saw a rise in new business from abroad in September. On the employment front, overall payroll numbers fell at the slowest rate for seven months. Meanwhile, stronger manufacturing expectations towards future output likewise supported an overall pick-up in business confidence to the highest since April 2018.
