IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™

IHS Markit



 
IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Dec 2017
 
     
  Tech sector returns to top of global rankings in November  
 
Abstract

Key findings:

  • Technology set to be fastest-growing sector over 2017 as a whole
  • Strongest rise in consumer goods output since January
  • Healthcare remains slowest growing area



The latest set of IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™ data signalled that global technology output increased sharply in November.
The rate of growth in the sector matched August’s 35-month record and was the fastest among eight broad global sectors monitored. At the detailed level growth remained fastest in other financials, while automobiles & auto parts registered a marked acceleration since October.

Technology’s position at the top of the sector growth table mainly reflected its manufacturing constituent, technology equipment, although software & services still registered solid overall growth in activity.

Automobiles & auto parts registered the sharpest acceleration in growth over the month of any sector monitored, climbing 14 places in the table to third place overall. Production rose at the fastest rate since April 2013, helping to lift overall growth of consumer goods output to a ten-month high.

Elsewhere, real estate business activity increased at the fastest rate since July 2014.
