South Africa Manufacturing PMI  1999-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The seasonally adjusted ABSA Manufacturing PMI for South Africa rose to 51.5 in May of 2017 from 44.7 in the previous month. The observed recovery suggests that April's contraction was mainly led by a souring sentiment rather than an effective deterioration in demand and economic activity. The April survey followed the controversial cabinet reshuffle late March with subsequent credit rating downgrades. New orders rose sharply and business activity accelerated, as demand recovered. Also, inventories increased. In contrast, employment declined significantly. Purchasing price index eased, led by the stronger rand exchange rate and lower crude oil prices. Manufacturing PMI in South Africa averaged 51.48 from 1999 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 64.20 in July of 2006 and a record low of 34.20 in April of 2009.
