IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Jun 2017
  Technology remains top of global sector PMI rankings in May  

Key findings:

  • Growth of hi-tech output at 32-month high
  • Industrials expansion hits 26-month record
  • Financials held back by real estate

The latest set of IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™ data signalled that technology and industrials continued to drive global economic growth on a sectoral basis in May, supported by stronger expansions in telecoms and financials.

Growth of hi-tech activity accelerated to a 32-month high in May. The technology sector has topped the broad global sector rankings three times in the past four months. The two constituent sectors of technology – technology equipment and software & services – were ranked in third and fifth places respectively in the detailed sector league table.

Industrials remained the second-fastest growing broad sector for the third month in a row in May, with the sharpest increase in output since March 2015. This primarily reflected strong growth in the commercial & professional services sector, supported by solid increases in output in transportation, machinery & equipment and general industrials.

Financials registered stronger growth in May, with insurance and other financials seeing the sharpest increases in activity. Real estate weighed on overall growth of the sector.
