Germany Manufacturing PMI Revised Slightly Higher
The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly higher to 34.5 in April of 2020 from an initial estimate of 34.4. The reading pointed to the sharpest contraction in factory activity since March of 2009 as the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting global virus containment measures led to a record fall in output and new orders. Also, a collapse in demand and bleak outlook for the coming year meanwhile resulted in the deepest cuts to factory job numbers for almost 11 years, despite widespread uptake of the short-time work scheme. Manufacturers' expectations for output over the coming year remained close to March's series record low. Most firms were pessimistic (62%), often citing concerns about long-lasting effects on demand and supply from the virus outbreak.

The IHS Markit Germany Manufacturing PMI fell to 34.4 in April of 2020 from 45.4 in March, below expectations of 39, preliminary figures showed. It is the lowest reading since March of 2009, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequente lockdown.

Firms’ expectations towards activity over the next 12 months remained deep in negative territory.

Germany Manufacturing PMI Revised Lower
The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 45.4 in March of 2020 from an initial estimate of 45.7. The reading pointed to the 15th straight month of contraction in factory activity amid progression of the coronavirus disease outbreak into a pandemic. Both output and new orders fell the most since April of 2009, driven by growing weakness in international demand and increased supply-chain disruption. Employment capacity was meanwhile scaled back. There was some relief on the supply-side from a further drop in input costs, linked to lower demand for raw materials and the recent slump in oil prices. The decline in output prices accelerated to the quickest since September of 2009. Finally, business confidence posted a record fall, slumping to its lowest for at least eight years.

Germany Manufacturing PMI
The Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 500 industrial companies. The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.
