UAE Non-Oil Private Sector Growth Accelerates
The S&P Global United Arab Emirates increased to 56.6 in October 2022 from 56.1 in the previous month, amid faster uplifts in both output and new orders. The strengthening of demand conditions brought additional capacity pressures, leading firms to increase their headcounts at the sharpest rate since July 2016 and purchase inputs to the greatest extent for over three years. Meanwhile, export orders grew the least since the start of the year, reflecting global economic headwinds. At the same time, backlogs of work increased sharply, linked to existing projects and pandemic-related shipping delays. Turning on prices, firms noted that reductions in costs for items such as fuel, steel, and transport had kept inflation mild. Meantime, output charges fell for the sixth month running, due to efforts from producers to maintain a competitive landscape. Finally, business confidence weakened and remained soft by historical standards.
