The IHS Markit Spain Services PMI rose to 50.2 in June 2020 from 27.9 in the previous month, easily beating market expectations of 45.9 and suggesting there was a stabilization in activity following the recent steep downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. New business volumes increased slightly, with several companies reporting that the virus continued to have an adverse impact on demand, while backlogs of unfinished work declined for a fourth successive month and staffing levels were also cut again. On the price front, input costs rebounded firmly in June, following two months of unprecedented declines. Output charges, however, continued to drop as the business environment remained extremely challenging and companies were offering lower charges to clients in a bid to maintain business and secure new work. Looking ahead, business confidence improved to the best since February.
