In China, the NBS Manufacturing Purchasing Manager Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of more large-scale, state-owned companies. The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change. .

Latest Updates

The official NBS Manufacturing PMI for China fell to 50.1 in August 2021 from 50.4 a month earlier and below market expectations of 50.2. This was the weakest pace of increase in factory activity since a contraction in February 2020, amid the Delta variant of COVID-19 outbreaks, higher material cost, and a campaign to reduce carbon emissions. Both output (50.9 vs 51.0 in July) and buying levels (50.3 vs 50.8) moderated, while there were declines in new orders (49.6 vs 50.9), export sales (46.7 vs 47.7), and employment (49.6 vs 49.6). On the price front, both input cost (61.3 vs 62.9) and selling prices (53.4 vs 53.8) went up at softer paces. Looking ahead, sentiment weakened for the sixth month in a row (57.5 vs 57.8).
