In the Euro Area, the Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 3,000 manufacturing firms. National data are included for Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, the Republic of Ireland and Greece. These countries together account for an estimated 90% of Eurozone manufacturing activity. 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 HCOB Flash Eurozone Manufacturing PMI fell to 45.6 in April 2024, the lowest in four months, from 46.1 in March, and below forecasts of 46.5. The reading continued to point to a persistent contraction in the factory sector, although production fell at the slowest rate in a year and job losses have eased somewhat. Also, manufacturing input prices continued to fall, helped by improved supply conditions. Otherwise, the picture remains rather bleak, with new business continuing to decline rapidly, along with order backlogs. Weak demand for industrial products was also evident in the sharp decrease in the volume of purchased inputs and the absence of a turnaround in the inventory cycle.
