Output from Germany's private sector remained unchanged in June, as a decline in manufacturing was offset by continued growth in services.

A flash reading of the country's composite Purchasing Managers' Index stayed at 52.6 in June, IHS Markit said on Friday, a slightly better reading than economists had forecast. Manufacturing production contracted for the fifth month in a row, while services continued their strong expansion.

A gauge of new export business picked up slightly, despite remaining below the key 50 level that indicates expansion. Expectations for output growth were the weakest in over 4 1/2 years, with many companies reporting that they expect an economic slowdown.

"Although the manufacturing downturn continued in June, there are tentative signs that the worst has passed," said Trevor Balchin, economics director at IHS Markit. "The longer-term outlook for the German private sector remains weak, however."
