Manufacturers reduced their buying activity, resulting in another sharp fall in stocks of raw materials. Meanwhile, suppliers' delivery times lengthened markedly due to shortages at suppliers. On the cost front, input price inflation hit a 17-month high, while output prices fell again. Finally, sentiment moderated to a four-month low.

Ireland Manufacturing Growth Slows Sharply
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI dropped to 52.3 in August 2020 from a near two-year high of 57.5 in the prior month. Growth rates for output and new orders eased sharply from July, while new export orders rose for the third straight month but at a much slower rate. At the same time, there were renewed cuts to employment and purchasing. Stocks of purchases fell at the second-fastest rate in nearly nine years, while finished goods inventories declined at the second-strongest pace in nearly 2-1/2 years. Prices data showed input prices increased, with prices charged falling as manufacturers tried to sell off old stock. Finally, sentiment remained positive, but has stalled since an initial rebound at the end of Q2.

Ireland Manufacturing Grows for First Time in 4 Months
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI jumped to 51.0 in June 2020 from 39.2 a month earlier. This was the first growth in the sector since February as coronavirus-led lockdown measures began to be lifted. Output and new orders both increased for the first time since February, with exports growing the most since April 2019. That said, the respective indices all remained weak relative to their long-run averages and manufacturers continued to shed staff at a marked – albeit slower – rate. At the same time, firms continued to cut back on the purchasing of new inputs, reflecting uncertainty around the near-term outlook for demand as lockdowns ease. Prices data showed input cost and prices charged for finished goods both fell for the fourth successive month, albeit at weak rates that were slightly slower than in May. Finally, sentiment improved to a four-month high.

Ireland Manufacturing PMI
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI Ireland measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 258 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.
