The S&P Global Eurozone Services PMI rose to 50.7 in January 2023 from 49.8 in the previous month, and above market expectations of 50.2, a preliminary estimate showed. The latest reading pointed to the first month of expansion in services activity since July, driven by technology, as well as healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, though industrial services also rebounded into growth territory. At the same time, downturns also eased in financial services, notably including real estate, and in basic resources sectors, while consumer-facing sectors such as tourism and recreation and household goods showed signs of stabilizing after several months of decline. New business placed at service providers fell only marginally and employment growth accelerated. On the price front, input cost inflation slipped to a 13-month low, while average selling price inflation ticked higher. source: Markit Economics
