IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Jan 2023
  Global Real Estate activity down at sharpest pace since opening wave of COVID-19 pandemic  

Key findings

  • Real Estate remains worst performer in December
  • Signs of stabilisation in Tourism & Recreation
  • Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology leads growth

The latest S&P Global Sector PMI™ data pointed to reductions in activity across a range of sectors at the end of 2022 as demand conditions deteriorated. Most categories continued to see employment increase, however.

As has been the case in recent months, the Real Estate sector was the worst performer in December, seeing a sharp decline in activity that was the fastest since April 2020. The fall was on the back of a further steep contraction in new orders. With financial conditions remaining challenging, Banks also recorded a marked drop in activity.

In all, 14 of the 21 monitored sectors saw output decrease in the final month of 2022. Some of the sharpest reductions were in the Forestry & Paper Products, Construction Materials and Chemicals categories.

Automobiles & Auto Parts remained in contraction, but rates of decline in output and new orders softened. Meanwhile, stocks of purchases and finished goods fell at the fastest rates in 20 and 15 months respectively as firms looked to scale back inventory holdings.

Despite demand and activity weakness, most sectors raised staffing levels. The sharpest increase in employment was in Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology, which also led growth of activity. Output in the sector has now expanded on a monthly basis throughout the past two-and-a-half years.

Tourism & Recreation activity showed signs of stabilisation, falling only marginally as new business decreased at a softer pace. Firms in the sector kept employment broadly unchanged.

While all sectors posted a rise in output prices in December, rates of inflation varied markedly depending on the pricing power among firms. Charges were up only marginally in Real Estate and Forestry & Paper Products, but increased sharply in Industrial Services and Technology Equipment.
