IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Nov 2018
  Global auto production falls in October  

Key findings:

  • Strongest decline in new orders for autos & parts in nearly six years
  • Output of basic materials falls, reflecting metals and chemicals
  • Industrial services posts sharpest growth of all 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.

Automobiles & auto parts registered the first decline in output since June 2016, driven by the fastest drop in new orders in nearly six years. Global new export orders for autos declined for the second month running, the first backto-back contraction for three-and-a-half years.

Three other sectors posted declines in output in October. The sharpest contraction was posted in metals & mining, where production fell at the fastest pace since July 2016. Chemicals and real estate also posted contractions.

At the broad level, basic materials (including metals & mining, chemicals and forestry & paper products) registered a decline in output for the first time in over two years.

The industrial services, software & services and insurance sectors posted the strongest growth in October. The fastest-growing manufacturing sector was industrial goods, in fifth place overall, followed by technology equipment in seventh.

With transportation also registering a strong increase in activity (in sixth place), industrials was the strongest-growing broad sector group in October.
