Philippines Factory Growth Slows
The IHS Markit Philippines Manufacturing PMI declined to 50.4 in July 2020 from 50.8 in June, amid toughest coronavirus curbs, with falls in output and new orders persisting. Meantime, the rate of job shedding eased to the softest since March, while firms continued to add to their pre-and post-production inventory holdings in anticipation of greater demand. At the same time, buying activity increased marginally, with growth now seen in two consecutive months. Turning to prices, the rate of input price inflation was robust at the start of Q3. Raw material shortages and the introduction of value-added tax to some goods exerted upward pressures on costs. Consequently, firms continued to raise their selling prices. Looking ahead, sentiment regarding output expectations over the next 12 months improved to a four-month high, due to Vaccination efforts.

Philippines Manufacturing Sector Stabilizes
The IHS Markit Philippines Manufacturing PMI was at 49.9 in May 2021, up from 49.0 in April, pointing to a swift movement towards stabilization with some businesses already resuming their operations. Output fell at a softer pace while only a marginal contraction in new orders was recorded. Staffing levels fell again, amid cost-saving pressures. Still, some firms were able to meet new orders as measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 were downgraded in some regions, allowing factories to reduce backlogs of work further. Supply chain pressures remained evident, however, with delivery times lengthening markedly. On the price front, input cost inflation was robust, but the rate of increase eased slightly from that seen in April. Meantime, firms partly passed on higher raw material costs to clients, with selling prices rising the most since November 2018. Lastly, confidence remained upbeat but the degree of sentiment was below the long-run average.

Philippines Manufacturing PMI
The IHS Markit Philippines Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 450 manufacturing companies. The 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.
