UAE Non-Oil Private Sector Shrinks for 5th Month
The IHS Markit United Arab Emirates PMI rose to 46.7 in May 2020 from a record low of 44.1 a month earlier. The latest reading pointed to the fifth straight month of contraction in the non-oil private sector, amid public health measures aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. Output fell to a much lesser extent than April's unprecedented pace, yet firms were still limited by a weak market environment and lower employment. Also, new orders continued to decrease sharply, pushed down by falling export orders. Greater freedom of travel meanwhile led to an easing of supply chain pressures. On the price front, input costs ticked up for the first time since February, with output prices falling for the 12th straight month, albeit only slightly as some firms passed on higher costs to consumers. Finally, sentiment towards future output dipped to the joint-lowest ever seen in the series, as businesses became increasingly concerned over the long-term impact of the virus disease.

UAE Non-Oil Private Sector Contracts at Record Pace
The IHS Markit United Arab Emirates PMI fell to 44.1 in April 2020 from 45.2 in March. This was the fourth straight month of contraction in the non-oil private sector and the steepest on record, amid public health measures aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. Steep falls were seen in output, new orders, and overseas sales. Also, employment declined further, with several companies asking employees to take unpaid leave and salary cuts; while backlogs rose at a much softer rate, mainly due to weaker levels of new business. At the same time, firms made further efforts to lower expenses, including a steep drop in purchasing activity. Delivery times, meanwhile, lengthened for the second straight month, largely attributed to border closures and reduced activity at vendors. On the price front, input costs fell at a modest pace, allowing businesses to reduce selling prices for the 19th month running. Lastly, sentiment weakened to a 32-month low.
