The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI rose to 58.3 in February of 2021 from 54.2 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the strongest expansion in factory activity since February 2018, boosted by accelerated growth in both output and new order levels. The rate of factory job creation quickened to the fastest for more than two years as firms looked to expand capacity and showed increased optimism towards the year-ahead outlook for activity. At the same time, however, there was a further intensification of supply chain pressures, with record numbers of goods producers facing delivery delays. Accordingly, input cost inflation spiked to a near-decade high. Lastly, February's survey showed business confidence towards future output at its highest in over three years. source: Markit Economics
