In France, the Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 400 industrial 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 IHS Markit France Manufacturing PMI edged down to 57.5 in August 2021, from 58.0 in the previous month and compared to a preliminary estimate of 57.3. Although the latest reading revealed robust growth in factory activity, it was the weakest pace of expansion since February, mainly due to slower growth levels in output and new orders. Across sectors, consumer and investment goods producers recorded lower output levels, leaving the intermediate goods manufacturers as the sole driver of expansion. Furthermore, employment expanded faster than in the previous month. However, manufacturers continued to see a build up in backlogs of work, amid growing demand, input shortages and supply chain disruptions. On the price front, purchasing costs rose at a steep pace, leading to another hike in selling charges. Finally, business confidence fell markedly as firms grew concerned about lingering supply chain issues and intense cost pressures.
