Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 600 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/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly higher to 57.9 in December of 2021 from a preliminary of 57.6, pointing to further growth of production, new orders and employment in the manufacturing sector. New orders however, fell for a fourth straight month, amid a steep decrease at consumer goods producers weighed by logistic issues, Brexit difficulties and the possibility of further COVID restrictions. Meanwhile, inflationary pressures remained elevated with selling price inflation hitting a record high while input prices also rose sharply due to higher costs for chemicals, electronics, energy, food products, metals, timber and wood, freight, shipping and air transportation. Finally, companies remained optimistic amid expectations of renewed global economic growth, planned investment and hopes for less disruption caused by COVID-19, Brexit and supply chain issues.
