Colombia Factory Activity Remains Weak in June
The Davivienda Colombia Manufacturing PMI rose to 48.3 in June of 2021 from a one-year low of 46.7 in the previous month. It was the second straight month of contractions in factory activity, weighed down by extraordinary drops in new business inflows and production levels, mostly attributed to the nationwide protests and road blockades, as well as reduced demand because of the pandemic. As a result, employment fell for the second consecutive month. The social unrest, coupled with global raw material shortages and international shipping issues, led to a contraction in input purchases unlike any other prior to the pandemic outbreak, which reflected in a sharp decline of finished product inventory levels. Nonetheless, input costs rose further at historically fast paces, to which manufacturers responded with an unprecedented hike in client charges. Business morale was slightly dented by the protests and the pandemic outlook but remained optimistic.

Colombia Factory Activity Contracts Sharply in Troubled May
The Davivienda Colombia Manufacturing PMI fell sharply to 46.7 in May of 2021 from 54.0 in the previous month, pointing to the first contraction in factory activity in a year.

Factories and business closures led to strong contractions in new orders and output levels. As a result, employment fell for the first since January, at one of the sharpest rates ever recorded. Furthermore, road blockades by anti-government protests lengthened a lot supplier delivery times, enhancing an already existent problem due to material shortages and COVID travel restrictions.

Entrepreneurs remain optimist nonetheless, as the protests have come to an end and vaccinations are now well underway

Colombia Factory Activity Expands for 3rd Straight Month
The Davivienda Colombia Manufacturing PMI rose to 54.0 in April of 2021 from 52.4 in the previous month, evidencing a notable acceleration in growth across the Colombian manufacturing industry. Increases were recorded both in terms of new orders and output, at faster paces than in the prior month, boosted not only by higher demand, but also due to productivity gains and a higher willingness for stock-building. In addition, intake of additional workers reached its fastest pace since January. However, steeped input buying together with raw material scarcities and supply-chain disruptions led input inflation to reach a five-and-a-half-year high, with some of this burden being eventually passed on to clients. As last, it is worth noting that confidence indicators deteriorated significantly in April, amid a third wave in COVID-19 cases which is threatening the commerce sector and other service activities.

Colombia Davivienda Manufacturing PMI
The Colombia Manufacturing PMI is based on data compiled from replies to questionnaires sent to purchasing managers in a panel of around 350 manufacturers. The panel is stratified by detailed sector and company workforce size, based on contributions to GDP. Survey responses are collected mid-month and denote the direction of change compared with the previous month. A diffusion index is calculated for each survey indicator. The index is the sum of the percentage of ‘higher’ responses and half the percentage of ‘unchanged’ responses. The indices vary between 0 and 100, with a reading above 50 indicating an overall increase and below 50 an overall decrease. The diffusion indices are then seasonally adjusted using an in-house method developed by IHS Markit. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a weighted average of the following five diffusion indices: New Orders (30%), Output (25%), Employment (20%), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15%) and Stocks of Purchases (10%). For the PMI calculation the Suppliers’ Delivery Times Index is inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction to the other indices.
