IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Jan 2019
 
     
  Global mining and basic metals output falls at strongest pace in over six years  
 
Abstract

Key findings:

  • Sharp drop in global exports of basic materials
  • Fastest decline in global autos output in over three years
  • Pharmaceuticals and insurance are fastest-growing global 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.

December completed a full quarter of declining global metals & mining output. Moreover, the rate of contraction accelerated to the fastest since September 2012. Global new export orders in the sector continued to fall, a trend repeated across other basic materials constituents including chemicals and forestry & paper products. The latter sector saw the steepest drop in output in over four years, while chemicals production rose only marginally.

Other weak sectors at the end of 2018 included automobiles & parts, which posted the fastest decline in production in over three years, and real estate, where activity rose only fractionally. In both cases, Europe was the main source of weakness. Meanwhile, global technology equipment output was broadly flat over the month.

The fastest-growing global sectors at the end of 2018 were pharmaceuticals & biotechnology, insurance and software & services. The latter also registered the fastest rate of job creation of any sector.
