06.08.2015 13:44 Germany's construction PMI falls to 50.6 in July

Markit Economics released construction purchasing managers' index (PMI) for Germany on Thursday. Germany's construction purchasing managers' index (PMI) fell to 50.6 in July from 50.7 in June.



A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.



The index was driven by lower commercial activity.



"The data highlighted that the sector is becoming more and more dependent on work on residential building projects, as civil engineering activity continued to decline at a marked pace and commercial building activity stagnated," an economist at Markit, Oliver Kolodseike, said.
