The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 56.5 in January of 2021 from 61.5 in December, pointing to the smallest expansion in the sector since June. New orders and production continued to rise solidly although at weaker rates, while export orders broadly stagnated. At the same time, job creation softened to the weakest in the current seven-month sequence of expansion as firms became increasingly cautious about their outlays. Purchasing activity was the weakest in seven months while inventories of purchases decreased amid reports of supply shortages and delivery delays. On the price front, the rate of input inflation remained sharper than any seen prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, amid reports of worldwide raw material shortages. As a consequence, Brazilian goods producers continued to lift their own charges. Looking ahead, positive sentiment was supported by the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines, new product launches and marketing efforts. source: Markit Economics

Brazil Factory Growth Remains Strong
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 61.5 in December of 2020 from 64 in November, but still pointed to strong growth in factory activity. Output, new orders and employment continued to grow solidly but at slower rates. Input buying increased for the sixth straight month and quicker than any seen prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. Meanwhile, stocks of purchases declined markedly, amid reports of ongoing difficulties in obtaining key materials. On the price front, both average input costs and output charges were among the steepest in the survey history, linked to raw material shortages and a weaker real. Finally, business sentiment remained positive in December, supported by hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will end and raw material availability will improve.

Brazil Factory Growth Remains Robust
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 64 in November of 2020 from a record 66.7 in October. Still, the reading pointed to a strong growth in factory activity, with producers lifting output sharply in response to sustained sales growth. Buoyed by improved business conditions, firms continued with their hiring efforts and purchased additional inputs amid attempts to increase safety stocks. Disruptions to supply chains meant that inventories fell, while raw material scarcity and real depreciation underpinned a record rise in input costs. Concurrently, currency weakness supported the sharpest upturn in exports since data were first collected in February 2006. Furthermore, growth remained broad-based across the consumer, intermediate and investment goods sectors.

Brazil Manufacturing PMI
In Brazil, the Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 400 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.
