The Caixin China General Composite PMI inched higher to 51.5 in October 2021 from 51.4 a month earlier, as sporadic COVID-19 outbreaks and related disruptions were under control. The latest reading signaled the second straight month of growth in the private sector, with services activity expanding at a faster rate while manufacturing production fell for the third month in a row. New orders rose for the second straight month, and at a solid pace that was the fastest since May; while, employment grew slightly for the first time in three months. Meantime, shortages of raw materials, soaring commodity prices, and electricity supply problems created strong constraints for manufacturers. On the cost side, input prices went up the most in five months. "Policymakers should not only take effective measures to stabilize commodity supplies and prices but also pay close attention to downstream firms, especially small and midsize ones," said Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group. source: Markit Economics

China Private Sector Returns to Expansion
The Caixin China General Composite PMI climbed to 51.4 in September 2021 from a 16-month low of 47.1 a month earlier, as COVID-19 outbreaks in some parts of the country receded. The upturn was mainly boosted by a renewed increase in services activity as manufacturing output fell slightly. September data pointed to a fresh rise in new work, amid a slight drop in new export business and a fractional fall in employment. Prices data, meanwhile, saw steeper increases in both input costs and output charges. "In the coming months, the government should focus on improving epidemic prevention and control and alleviating supply-side pressure," said Dr. Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group. "It should also find a balance among multiple objectives, such as promoting employment, holding raw material prices stable, ensuring a stable and orderly supply, and meeting targets for controlling energy consumption.”

China Private Sector Shrinks for 1st Time Since April 2020
The Caixin China General Composite PMI tumbled to 47.2 in August 2021 from 53.1 a month earlier, pointing to the first contraction in private sector activity since April 2020, dragged down by a resurgence of COVID-19 cases in several regions. The dip in the headline index was driven by renewed falls in activity across both the manufacturing and service sectors, with the latter noting the steeper rate of decline. New work also decreased for the first time in 16 months while employment fell slightly. At the same time, inflationary pressure remained high as raw material prices were still high and measures to counter the outbreaks pushed up transportation costs, while output prices increased slightly. Finally, surveyed manufacturers and service providers were only moderately optimistic about the economic outlook.
