Brazil Factory Activity Shrinks the Most in Over 3 Years
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI dropped to 48.4 in March 2020 from 52.3 in the previous month and missing market expectations of 51.7. The latest reading pointed to the sharpest contraction in factory activity since February 2017, amid the coronavirus pandemic. Output declined due to lower customer demand and, in some cases, in response to public health measures to halt the spread of the virus. New orders went down at the fastest pace since January 2017 and export sales dropped further amid factory shutdowns abroad and delayed projects. The job shedding rate accelerated to an over three-year high; while backlogs of work rose for the first time since the truck drivers' protests in June 2018, amid disruptions to international supply chains. On the price front, input cost inflation quickened to an over one-year high mostly due to exchange rate depreciation; and output price inflation hit an 18-month high.

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.
