Mexico Business Conditions Broadly Stabilise in July
The IHS Markit Mexico Manufacturing PMI went up to 49.6 in July of 2021 from 48.8 in the previous month, approaching the 50.0 no-change mark. The latest reading highlighted tentative signs of a recovery in the health of the Mexican manufacturing industry, with production declining at the slowest rate in the current 17-month sequence of contraction amid a softer fall in sales. Concurrently, jobs decreased only fractionally and business sentiment strengthened. Input costs continued to rise amid ongoing supply-chain disruptions. The rate of inflation was the fastest in three years. Finally, businesses became more optimistic towards the 12-month outlook for production, with the overall degree of confidence the strongest in one-and-a-half years.
Mexico Manufacturing Shrinks the Least in 16 Months
The IHS Markit Mexico Manufacturing PMI climbed to 48.8 in June of 2021 from 47.6 in the previous month, pointing to the slowest contraction in factory activity in the current 16-month sequence of declines. Mexican firms continued to be negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, business closures and raw material shortages, but the pace of contraction in production, new business inflows and new export orders was the slowest since March 2020 amid signs of recovery in client demand both domestically and internationally. On the price front, average input prices rose at the second fastest pace in 34 months, while output charges were marginally lower. Business morale stood at a 17-month high in June, above the 50 threshold, underpinned by hopes of sales growth, easing raw material shortages and progress in the vaccination drive.
Mexico Factory Activity Shrinks for 15th Straight Month
The IHS Markit Mexico Manufacturing PMI retreated to 47.6 in May of 2021 from 48.4 in the previous month, pointing to the 15th straight month of contractions in Mexican factory activity. Output and new orders were weighed down by subdued sales, raw material shortages, competitive pressure and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Weak external demand and public-health restrictions were key factors behind the decline in external sales, and employment fell at the fastest pace in three months, amid the ending of temporary contracts, resignations, and lack of new work. On the price front, input inflation softened from a 33-month high hit in the prior month and stood below the long-term average, while output prices decreased due to efforts to boost sales. Looking ahead, manufacturers were the most optimistic in 16-months, on hopes that product launches, vaccine progress, and promotional activities could underpin output growth over the next 12 months.
Mexico Factory Activity Falls the Least in Over a Year
The IHS Markit Mexico Manufacturing PMI rose to 48.4 in April of 2021 from 45.6 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the smallest contraction in factory activity in the current 14-month sequence of declines. There were notably softer reductions in new orders, output, exports, employment and stocks as demand improved. Still, supply-chain constraints, raw material shortages and the Suez Canal blockage underpinned a further increase in delivery times and the sharpest rise in input costs since July 2018. Meanwhile, firms absorbed the additional cost burden and reduced their selling prices amid efforts to stimulate demand. Finally, business sentiment reached a two-month high, supported by hopes that COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted soon.
