Markit Economics released construction purchasing managers' index (PMI) for Germany on Thursday. Germany's construction purchasing managers' index (PMI) fell to 51.8 in October from 52.4 in September.
A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.
The index was driven by a drop in new business.
"October's construction PMI data signalled that building firms remained busy at the start of the fourth quarter. While the pace of expansion in construction output slowed since September, growth has now been reported in each of the past nine months," an economist at Markit, Oliver Kolodseike, said.
