The IHS Markit Greece Manufacturing PMI decreased to 48.6 in July of 2020 from 49.4 in the prior month, reversing the trend towards recovery seen following April's record low. Output and new orders declined at a quicker pace, as uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic weighed on domestic and foreign client demand. Employment was also cut marginally but stemmed from an accelerated rise in spare capacity at goods producers. On the price front, input prices rose for the first time in four months amid higher raw material costs. Meanwhile, output charges continued to fall as firms used further discounting in an attempt to boost sales and attract new clients. Looking ahead, the degree of optimism over an increase in output over the coming year dropped notably from June's four-month high, despite sentiment remained positive overall.

Greek Factory Activity Downturn Softens Markedly
The IHS Markit Greece Manufacturing PMI rose to 49.4 in June of 2020 from 41.1 in the previous month, pointing to a notably slower contraction in the country's manufacturing sector. Output and new orders fell much less, amid loosening Covid-19 restrictions. Meanwhile, some firms continued to cut further jobs in an effort to reduce costs, amid weak client demand after several months of shutdown. Backlogs of work fell strongly, as many firms noted the rise in production was partly linked to the fulfillment of work-in-hand. On the price front, cost burdens continued to fall due to lower demand for inputs while firms reduced selling prices for the fourth straight month, often offering discounts to boost sales. Looking forward, sentiment turned positive for the first time since February, on hopes of a return to pre-pandemic new order volumes, the reopening of the economy and the acquisition of new clients.

Greek Factory Activity Rises from Record Low
The IHS Markit Greece Manufacturing PMI climbed to 41.1 in May of 2020 from 29.5 in the previous month, which was the strongest since data collection began in May 1999. The drop in output was largely driven by weak demand conditions, as clients continued to cancel and postpone new orders. Foreign client demand also fell amid ongoing lockdowns in key export markets. Subsequently, workforce numbers fell markedly as excess capacity increased and pessimism was sustained. On the price front, cost burdens fell further amid lower demand for inputs while firms reduced output charges at a steep rate. Finally, expectations of a prolonged recovery and difficulties accessing credit during the pandemic weighed on confidence.

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.
