Comments from Chris Williamson, chief corporate economist at S&P Global

“The economy is starting to look like it’s running on empty. Current business growth is being supported by orders placed in previous months, as companies report near-stagnation in demand. Manufacturing, in particular , are struggling with falling orders, especially from exports, and the services sector is already seeing a reversal of the recent run of demand growth suppressed during the pandemic amid rising costs of living.”

“Business confidence has slumped to a level that in the past used to signal an impending recession. Weakness in the broad flow of economic data so far in the second quarter points to a drop in GDP which, according to PMI figures, , will gain momentum in the third quarter.”
