IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Mar 2020
 
     
  Coronavirus disruption impacts almost all sectors in February  
 
Abstract

Key findings:

  • Eight global sectors register fastest contractions in output since series began in late-2009
  • Transportation and tourism & recreation are worst-affected areas of services economy
  • Pharmaceuticals & biotechnology bucks overall trend with stronger rise in output


Global Sector PMI indices are compiled from responses to questionnaires sent to purchasing managers in IHS Markit's global PMI survey panels, covering over 27,000 private sector companies in more than 40 countries. Indices are available for the basic materials, consumer goods, consumer services, financials, healthcare, industrials, technology and telecommunication services industry groups, and sub-sectors of these groups.

February data signalled widespread disruption across sectors stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. Eight sectors posted the fastest falls in output on record during the month, since the global sector data were first compiled in October 2009. Automobiles & auto parts, metals & mining and chemicals registered the strongest rates of decline. In the service sector, transportation and tourism & recreation were the worst affected. The largest month-on-month declines in the Output Index were registered in metals & mining (-11.7), tourism & recreation (-9.9) and transportation (-9.4).

Only pharmaceuticals & biotechnology and other financials posted any meaningful growth in activity in February. Pharmaceuticals & biotechnology posted the fastest expansion since December 2018, and was the only sector to see a rise in the Output Index since January.

At the broad level, record contractions were seen in basic materials, consumer goods, consumer services and industrials. Telecommunication services was the only broad sector to register growth, although the rate of expansion was fractional.

The Global Sector PMI data provide corporate planners and decision makers, economic analysts, policy makers and investors with a powerful and unique database with which to monitor business cycles by industry. Sector trends over time can be tracked as well as relative performance between sectors, allowing identification of key growth industries and the drivers within them. The dataset provides monthly indicators of business trends across variables such as output, order books, prices, inventories and employment for eight major groups including: basic materials, consumer goods, consumer services, financials, healthcare, industrials, technology and telecommunication services; and a further 26 sectors and subsectors of those groups.
