Australia Construction PMI  2005-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The AIG/Housing Industry Association Performance of Construction Index in Australia increased to 51.9 in April of 2017 from 51.2 in the previous month, indicating a third straight month of expansion. Growth in construction activity was driven by work in apartments and engineering as new orders recovered from a 5-month low in March, and deliveries from suppliers lifted to the strongest levels in 30 months. By sector: slight improvements were recorded for new orders (51.9 from 47.5), deliveries (58 from 52), input prices (76 from 74.5) and selling prices (58.5 from 55.6); slight decreases were recorded for employment (49.6 from 55.2), wages (63.6 from 64.4) and capacity utilization (77.7 from 78.2). Survey respondents attributed April's expansion to improved activity levels in multi-unit developments and a high degree of support from on-going projects for house builders. Construction Pmi in Australia averaged 45.46 Index Points from 2005 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 59.10 Index Points in September of 2014 and a record low of 29.24 Index Points in December of 2008.
