  Sector PMI data reveal much slower falls in output and pockets of growth in June  

Key findings

  • Four sectors record higher business activity in June, led by banks
  • All other sectors see much slower rates of decline
  • Tourism & recreation rises from bottom of rankings for first time in four months

With national lockdowns across the globe partially lifted in June, all sectors monitored recorded improved output trends compared to May as factories and businesses began to ramp up operations again, albeit generally at well below full capacity.

Global Sector PMI indices are compiled from responses to questionnaires sent to purchasing managers in IHS Markit's global PMI survey panels. 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.

Four sectors registered higher activity in June compared with May: banks, real estate, construction materials and telecommunication services. That said, rates of expansion were subdued compared with the long-run series trends (since October 2009).

All other sectors monitored posted much slower declines in activity in June, as indicated by higher (albeit still below 50.0) index readings. The strongest overall decline was seen in technology equipment, followed by tourism & recreation and other financials respectively. June marked the first month where tourism & recreation was not the bottom-ranked global sector since February.

Looking ahead 12 months, the most optimistic sectors in June were pharmaceuticals & biotechnology, beverages & food, chemicals and telecommunication services. Insurance, tourism & recreation and real estate held the weakest expectations for activity.
