The IHS Markit Spain Manufacturing PMI ticked up to 59.5 in August of 2021 from 59.0 in July, easily beating market expectations of 58.9. The reading signalled a further marked improvement in the health of the sector, extending the current period of growth to seven months. Moreover, the strengthening of business conditions was among the most marked since the survey began in February 1998. A further improvement in demand supported strong growth in new orders and production during August, with Spanish manufacturers posting a near-record rise in output. As a result, firms took on extra staff at a faster pace and ramped up their purchasing activity. That said, supply-chain disruption remained severe, contributing to further steep rises in input costs and selling prices. Some firms attempted to mitigate these issues by building stocks of purchases. Concerns around raw material supply contributed to business confidence easing to a nine-month low. source: Markit Economics
