The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) measures the activity level of purchasing managers in the manufacturing sector. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector; below 50 indicates contraction.

All relative in the UK economy where 80% of GDP comes from the services sector.
Says Markit:

  • The UK manufacturing sector started the final
    quarter of the year on a solid footing. Production
    and new order volumes continued to rise at robust
    rates, as companies benefited from strong
    domestic market conditions and rising inflows of
    new export business.
  • Price pressures remained
    elevated, however, with rates of inflation in input
    costs and output charges both accelerating and
    staying well above historical series averages.
  • The expansion was broad based
    by sub-sector, with consumer, intermediate
    and investment goods producers all registering
    output growth.
