The HSBC Factory Purchase Managers’ Index declined marginally to 51 in November from 52 in the previous month. The fall has been attributed to a slight decline in new export orders on the back of uncertain global conditions
Factory output, as measured by the HSBC Factory Purchase Managers’ Index (PMI), declined marginally to 51 in November from 52 in the previous month. The fall has been attributed to a slight decline in new export orders on the back of uncertain global conditions. While the latest reading pointed to an improvement in business conditions in the Indian manufacturing sector, the rate of growth was marginal and weak in the context of historical data, HSBC Markit said in a release.
The HSBC India Manufacturing PMI is based on a survey of purchasing executives in over 500 manufacturing companies. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease.
The slower rise in new orders resulted in backlogs of work increasing sharply. The November data also signalled a fall in employment in the manufacturing sector for the fourth month in a row.
Input prices faced by manufacturers in India rose substantially during November, with the rate of cost inflation accelerating slightly to a three-month high. Higher raw material prices were cited as the main driver of the rise in costs.
Commenting on the India Manufacturing PMI survey, Leif Eskesen, chief economist for India & ASEAN at HSBC said, “Manufacturing sector continues to grow at a slower clip led by a deceleration in domestic orders. Despite this, manufacturers still struggle to keep up with new orders and inflation pressures are not abating. This suggests that the RBI will have to keep monetary conditions tight for an extended period.”
