Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data from China's National Bureaus of Statistics and the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing (CFLP)

Manufacturing PMI 49.2

  • expected 49.7, prior 49.6
  • the second month of contraction in a row, energy shortages and high input prices taking a toll

Non-manufacturing PMI 52.4

  • expected 52.9, prior 53.2
  • this is a reasonable result given ongoing COVID-19 disruptions (much smaller in scale than those mid-2021 and of course in 2020)

Composite 50.8

  • prior 51.7
