The IHS Markit Germany Manufacturing PMI increased to 58 in October of 2020 from 56.4 in September and well above market expectations of 55.1. The reading pointed to the strongest expansion in factory activity since April of 2018, preliminary estimates showed. Stronger growth of factory output and new orders, a slower fall in stocks of purchases, and a greater lengthening of input delivery times drove the expansion. There were increases in sales to Asia (often China), the US and across Europe. Input prices rose only marginally, but it was the first increase in a year-and-a-half amid higher demand for materials and associated shortages at suppliers. On the other hand, further staff cuts were observed. source: Markit Economics

The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly lower to 56.4 in September 2020, from a preliminary estimate of 56.6 and compared to August's 52.2.

New order growth was among the strongest recorded since data collection began in 1996, with new export orders rising the most since December 2017 amid reports of improved demand across Europe, China and Turkey. In addition, output increased the most in more than two-and-a-half years, while the rate of job shedding eased for the second month in a row. Purchasing activity growth was the fastest seen since February 2018. On the price front, both input costs and output charges fell.

Germany Factory Growth Revised Lower: PMI
The IHS Markit Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 52.2 in August from a preliminary of 53. Still, the reading pointed to the second straight month of rising factory activity and the strongest growth since October of 2018. New orders continue to rebound from the lows during the coronavirus lockdown and growth of production reached the strongest for two-and-a-half years, led by the intermediate and consumer goods, while makers of investment goods lag behind. Goods producers meanwhile noted a further marked round of job cuts, though the decline in employment eased amid improved expectations and steadily rising backlogs of work. The degree of optimism was the highest since February 2018, with a growing number of companies hopeful of a sustained recovery in domestic and export demand.

Germany Manufacturing PMI
The Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 500 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.
