The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI rose to 56.4 in June of 2021 from 53.7 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to another acceleration in factory activity and at the quickest pace since February, driven by solid rises in new orders and output. In particular, exports increased for the fifth consecutive month and at the fastest pace over this period. As a result, firms increased input buying and staff numbers at marked rates. Meanwhile, manufacturers continued to face steep increases in input costs and selling prices, as global shortages of raw materials and currency weakness exerted further pressure on cost burdens. On the stock front, there were record rates of increase in both stocks of purchases and finished items. Finally, the overall level of positive sentiment hit a six-month high in June, supported by hopes of greater vaccine availability and that the pandemic will retreat. source: Markit Economics

Brazil Factory Activity Growth at 3-Month High
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI rose to 53.7 in May of 2021 from 52.3 in the previous month, ending a two-month slowdown in factory activity growth. The acceleration in Brazil’s manufacturing sector was the fastest in three-months, driven by renewed growth in output and new orders, which also lifted employment for the second straight month, despite rising COVID-19 infections and ongoing local public-health restrictions. Also, new export orders were the highest this year with the help of a stronger demand in LATAM countries and a weaker real. Constraints along supply-chains and scarcity of raw materials stretched average lead times to one of the greatest extents since the series began and fueled a faster pace of input purchasing. Looking ahead, business sentiment improved to a three-month high, on hopes that the vaccination campaign, product diversification, investments and easing supply-chain bottlenecks will underpin output growth in the coming 12 months.

Brazil Factory Activity Growth at 10-Month Low
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 52.3 in April of 2021 from 52.8 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to another slowdown in factory activity and at the quickest pace since last June amid the worsening pandemic crisis. Both output and new orders continued to decrease although at softer rates. As a result, buying activity was broadly stagnant, after expanding for nine consecutive months. On the other hand, employment recovered modestly, as some firms sought to replace staff laid off because of the pandemic and others foresee better economic conditions in the medium-term. On the price front, both cost burdens and output charges continued to rise sharply, attributed to a lack of raw material availability and real depreciation. Looking forward, business sentiment increased from March and was above its long-run average, with firms expecting capacity expansions, investments, new partnerships, advertising, and greater COVID-19 vaccine availability.

Brazil Factory Activity Growth Eases in March
The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI eased to 52.8 in March of 2021 from 58.4 in February, pointing to a weaker expansion in the manufacturing sector, amid resurging infections and new restrictions to curb the spread of the pandemic. The worsening health crisis led to contractions in new orders, output and employment for the first time in several months. There were also severe supply chain pressures, as average lead times lengthened to one of the greatest extents seen since data collection started in February 2006, amid the shipping crisis and raw materials shortages. Input cost inflation was one of the steepest in the series, similarly seen in the rise in output charges. Looking ahead, business optimism was at the lowest in ten months, with manufacturers citing concerns over the pandemic.

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.
