In China, the Caixin China Composite Output Index tracks business trends across private sector activity, based on data collected from a representative panel of around 400 companies. The index tracks variables such as sales, new orders, employment, inventories and prices. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in business activity and below 50 indicates that it is generally declining.

Latest Updates

The Caixin China General Composite PMI tumbled to 47.2 in August 2021 from 53.1 a month earlier, pointing to the first contraction in private sector activity since April 2020, dragged down by a resurgence of COVID-19 cases in several regions. The dip in the headline index was driven by renewed falls in activity across both the manufacturing and service sectors, with the latter noting the steeper rate of decline. New work also decreased for the first time in 16 months while employment fell slightly. At the same time, inflationary pressure remained high as raw material prices were still high and measures to counter the outbreaks pushed up transportation costs, while output prices increased slightly. Finally, surveyed manufacturers and service providers were only moderately optimistic about the economic outlook.
