The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell further to 61.8 in August of 2021 from 63.9 in the previous month, pointing to the slowest expansion in factory activity since February. New orders growth rate eased in August, down to the lowest in 6 months due to weaker growth in export sales. Production levels growth was also subdued this month amid supply bottlenecks of raw material and components. Low production level and low new order level led to the smallest rate of depletion of stocks of finished goods since March, although producers continued to use up the stocks to plug the gap between demand and supply. Meanwhile, imbalances between supply and demand kept both input costs and output prices elevated, although they eased from July's record highs. Looking forward, manufacturer’s expectations ticked up slightly since July and they have reported strong optimism for the coming year. source: Markit Economics

Austria Manufacturing PMI at 4-Month Low
The UniCredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell to 63.9 in July of 2021 from 67.0 in the previous month, pointing to the slowest expansion in factory activity since March. New orders were at a 5-month low as demand showed its first signs of cooling domestically and internationally, some respondents commented, while others highlighted the impact of the global semiconductor shortage in the auto sector. Production levels were also subdued this month amid severe supply bottlenecks, with output growth down to February levels. Converging output and new order levels were linked to a softer accumulation of outstanding business and a slower depletion of finished good stocks. Still, ongoing imbalances between supply and demand helped push the rates of both input and output inflation to new record highs. Looking forward, manufacturers’ expectations eased to the lowest in 2021 but remained highly positive.

Austria Manufacturing PMI at New Record High in June
The UniCredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI climbed to 67 in June of 2021 from 66.4 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the third consecutive record growth in the factory sector, driven by an ongoing surge in new orders as demand continued to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Production levels were raised further, although the pace of output growth eased amid constraints from supply shortages. Lengthening input lead-times and sharply rising backlogs of work underscored a general imbalance between supply and demand, which in turn helped push up rates of inflation of both input costs and output prices to new record highs at the end of the second quarter. There were widespread hopes of a sustained recovery in demand over the next 12 months, and an eventual easing of supply chain disruption.

Austria Factory Activity Growth Rises to New All-Time High
The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI rose to 66.4 in May of 2021 from 64.7 in the previous month, pointing to a record growth in the factory sector. Austrian manufacturers experienced record increases for new orders and output, driven by stronger external demand, a recovery in investment spending and the easing of lockdown restrictions. Widespread urgency to boost capacity as backlogs increased at record pace, led to a pick-up in the rate of job creation that stood at a 3-year high. Additionally, supply-side conditions continued to worsen amid severe material shortages and rising delivery delays, which pushed both cost inflation and factory gate charges to a survey high. At last, business confidence eased further to a 4-months low, as manufacturers remain generally positive about next year’s outlook, while stating concerns regarding the ongoing supply issues.
