Eurozone Construction Activity Expands Slightly
The IHS Markit Eurozone Construction PMI edged up to 50.3 in May 2021, from 50.1 in April, signaling a third consecutive expansion in activity. Though fractional overall, the rate of growth was the quickest recorded since February 2020. Home building activity growth hit a 15-month high, while commercial building activity and civil engineering works decreased again. The rise in total eurozone construction activity was led by a steep increase at Italian companies, who noted the fastest expansion since January 2007. In addition, France's output returned to growth, while activity in Germany continued to contract. On the price front, input costs rose the most since data became available in January 2000, amid higher raw material prices due to widespread shortages among suppliers.
