The S&P Global France Manufacturing PMI fell to 49.5 in July of 2022 from 51.4 in the prior month, revised downwards from the preliminary estimate of 49.6. It was the lowest figure since May 2020, as both manufacturing output and new orders declined at the fastest pace since the pandemic-induced disruptions in the first half of 2020. Surveyors cited lower demand as clients were hesitant with uncertain economic conditions, the war in Ukraine, and the inflation outlook. Subsequently, the rate of job creation slowed to a ten-month low. On the price front, inflationary pressures eased slightly from the previous month, although still high. Finally, business confidence was historically subdued in July. source: Markit Economics

France Manufacturing PMI
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.

The S&P Global France Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.4 in June of 2022 from 54.6 in the prior month, revised upwards from the preliminary estimate of 51. It was the lowest figure since December of 2020, as manufacturing output contracted for the first time since October of last year, while new orders fell at the sharpest rate since November of 2020. Surveyors cited lower demand as clients were hesitant with uncertain economic conditions and higher prices.
