Global Manufacturing PMI ™

  Global manufacturing output and new orders accelerate at start of fourth quarter  

Key findings

  • Manufacturing PMI at 53.0 in October (29-month high)
  • Business confidence strengthens
  • Further mild decrease in employment

Global manufacturing output rose at the fastest pace in over two-and-a-half years in October, building on the return to growth seen during the third quarter of the year. New order intakes strengthened, assisted by a further upturn in international trade, while business optimism rose to its highest level since May 2018.

The J.P.Morgan Global Manufacturing PMI™ – a composite index produced by J.P.Morgan and IHS Markit in association with ISM and IFPSM – posted 53.0 in October, up from 52.4 in September, to post its best reading for 29 months (since May 2018). The headline PMI has signalled growth in each of the past four months.

Notes: Due to later-than-usual release dates, October 2020 data for Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Myanmar and the Philippines were not available for inclusion in the global figures.

Manufacturing output increased in October, with solid growth seen across the consumer, intermediate and investment goods industries. The fastest expansion was in the investment goods sector (albeit slightly slower than in September) and the weakest at consumer goods producers (slowest in the current four-month upturn). The overall acceleration was therefore centred on the intermediate goods category, where growth improved to a 33-month high.

Output growth was registered in 20 out of the 26 territories for which October data were available. In North America, both the US (11-month high) and Canada (26-month high) saw solid and accelerated increases in production. Growth also improved to a 32-month high in the euro area, led by the steepest expansion in Germany for almost a decade. Output rose at quicker rates in China, India and South Korea. The downturn in Japan continued, making it one of only six nations to record contractions (the others being Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Malaysia and Russia).

Global manufacturing new orders rose for the fourth successive month, aided by a further increase in new export business. Total new business expanded across the consumer, intermediate and investment goods sub-industries. Higher levels of production and new work received led to greater optimism among manufacturers, with business sentiment rising to a 29-month high.

October saw manufacturing employment reduced for the eleventh consecutive month. That said, the pace of job shedding was only marginal and down markedly since the height of the pandemic. Staffing levels were raised in the US and China, in contrast to losses in the euro area and Japan.

Input price inflation accelerated to a 23-month record in October. Part of the increase in costs was passed on in the form of higher output charges, as highlighted by the sharpest rise in selling prices since March 2019. Supply-chain disruption continued, as signalled by a further lengthening of average vendor lead times. Stocks of inputs and finished products both decreased, the former despite a solid increase in purchasing activity.
