The IHS Markit Australia Composite PMI was revised lower to 43.3 in August of 2021 from a preliminary estimate of 43.5 and compared to July's 45.2. This was the second straight month of contraction in the private sector and at the steepest pace in 15 months, reflecting the continued toll that the Delta COVID-19 wave is taking on Australia’s economy. Manufacturing output followed services into contraction after thirteen months of expansion, while business activity in the service sector suffered a more severe downturn amid extended lockdown conditions across many parts of Australia. New orders also decreased. At the same time, strong price pressures persisted, as COVID-19 mobility restrictions led to shipping delays and shortages. Looking on the bright side, firms were slightly more optimistic and hopeful for an eventual recovery in August compared to the prior month. source: Markit Economics
