  Autos & parts sector posts series-record drop in output in February  
 
Abstract

Key findings:

  • Autos production falls at sharpest rate since series began in October 2009
  • Metals & mining output drops for fifth month running
  • Rebound in finance-related sectors


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.

Global output of automobiles & auto parts fell for the fifth month running in February. Moreover, the rate of contraction was the strongest since global sector PMI data were first available in October 2009. New orders in the sector fell at the fastest pace in over six years.

Global metals & mining output also fell for the fifth month running in February, and at the strongest rate among all sectors monitored.

Four other sectors registered lower activity in February, namely telecommunication services, forestry & paper products, industrial goods and chemicals.

In contrast, the four finance-related sectors monitored all registered stronger trends in activity in February. Insurance recorded the fastest growth of all areas, followed by other financials. Banks was ranked in fifth place overall, while real estate activity increased at the fastest rate in six months following January's contraction. Overall financials activity also increased at the sharpest pace in six months, propelling it to the top of the rankings for the seven broad industry groups monitored.
