A Closer Look at the Figures

There were noticeable improvements in new orders, which rose to 47.1 from 43.4 in September, and business volumes, which increased to 47.2 from 45.8. However, both these figures stayed below the crucial 50 mark. On the other hand, employment continued its upward trend, reaching 55.9 from 51.3, marking the highest level since January. Conversely, delivery times declined further, dropping to 45.2 from 46.1. Regarding prices, input costs escalated to 59.2 from 58.8, a significant increase compared to the falling prices in the industry.

Swedbank PMI analyst Jörgen Kennemar commented, “The decline in PMI services has been less severe than in previous economic downturns, suggesting that Sweden’s service sector is resilient. However, we have yet to see the lowest point.”
