UK Sector Tracker - UK sectors saw a rise in output in July

The UK Composite PMI resumed its downtrend in July, dropping to 52.1, more than reversing June's temporary tick up to 53.7, to hit a seventeen-month low and consistent with a moderation in UK economic activity. Of the 14 UK sectors monitored by the Tracker, only 4 saw a rise in new orders in July as the rising cost-of-living and recession fears hit non-essential spending. This was down from 5 in June and the lowest number since June 2020. Moreover, a slowdown in demand across the global economy resulted in the fading of growth momentum in July. The Global Composite Output PMI fell to 50.8, from 53.5 in June, signalling the weakest expansion in economic activity since June 2020.
