The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI increased to 58.2 in November of 2021 from 57.8 in October, pointing to the strongest growth in factory activity in 3 months, and well above market forecasts of 57.3, preliminary estimates showed. Output, new orders and employment rose the most since August but the supply chain crisis showed little sign of easing. Severe shortages of materials and staff held back growth and led to escalating input prices, with the rate of cost inflation the fastest since the survey began in January 1992. Also, export sales decreased slightly and manufacturers noted that long lead times and Brexit trade frictions had held back sales to customers in the EU. source: Markit Economics

UK Manufacturing PMI Rebounds from 7-Month Low
The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI stood at 57.8 in October 2021, little-changed from a preliminary estimate of 57.7 and above September's seven-month low of 57.1. Production rose only marginally and at the slowest pace for eight months, due to supply chain delays alongside shortages of raw materials, staff and certain skills. Meanwhile, new order intakes rose at a slightly quicker pace, despite a decline in new export orders, and employment rose for the tenth month running. On the price front, input and output costs rise at record rates. Looking ahead, business optimism dipped to an eight-month low.

UK Factory Activity Unexpectedly Accelerates
The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI unexpectedly increased to 57.7 in October of 2021 from 57.1 in August, beating forecasts of 55.8, preliminary estimates showed. The reading pointed to a stronger growth in factory activity, boosted by faster rates of new order and employment growth, alongside a steeper rise in stocks of purchases and lengthier supplier lead times. In contrast, manufacturers signalled another slowdown in production growth due to severe shortages of staff and materials. Goods producers widely commented on difficulties meeting customer demand due to capacity constraints resulting from lengthy supplier lead times and shortages of staff. Meanwhile, input cost inflation picked up for the first time in four months to a record level, mainly due to rising energy bills, freight costs and steep price increases for a range of raw materials.

United Kingdom Manufacturing PMI
Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 600 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.
