South Africa Manufacturing PMI  1999-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The seasonally adjusted Barclays PMI for South Africa declined to 46.7 in December of 2016, compared to 48.3 in November. The reading pointed to the fifth straight month of contraction in the factory activity on persisting weakness of domestic demand. Most notably, the index measuring suppliers’ performance slumped to a historic low of 40.9 from 48 index points in November, reflecting the broad-based weakness of the domestic economy as it implies that suppliers are operating way below capacity. The business activity index fell by 2.6 points to 46.3 in December, the sixth straight month of a decline in output. Encouragingly, the new sales orders index managed to stay just above 50 in December (50.9), likely lifted by continued export orders. Manufacturers were also relatively optimistic about expected business conditions in six months’ time, albeit that the index fell slightly from 53.9 to 53.2 in December. Manufacturing PMI in South Africa averaged 51.51 from 1999 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 64.20 in July of 2006 and a record low of 34.20 in April of 2009.
