The Caixin China General Composite PMI increased to a four-month high of 54.7 in April 2021 from 53.1 a month earlier. The latest reading was above the long-run trend, as the gauges for total demand, supply, employment, and overseas demand were all in expansionary territory. On the price front, inflationary pressures stayed strong, with input cost inflation hitting its highest since January 2017, while price charges rose solidly. Looking ahead, sentiment slipped from March's eight-year record but remained historically upbeat. "In the coming months, rising raw material prices and imported inflation are expected to limit policy choices and become a major obstacle to the sustained economic recovery," said Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group source: Markit Economics

China Composite PMI Highest in 3 Months: Caixin
The Caixin China General Composite PMI increased to 53.1 in March 2021 from 51.7 a month earlier. This was the highest reading since December last year, driven by a sharper rise in services activity, as manufacturing production growth was fractionally slower than that seen in February. New orders rose at a faster rate, supported by a renewed expansion in overall export sales. In addition, employment rose slightly after a mild drop in February. As for prices, input costs and output charges both rose sharply, with the latter increasing the most since November 2016. Lastly, confidence was at an eight-month high. "The economy continued to recover from the epidemic. More attention still needs to be paid to inflation going forward. This has restricted the room for future policy changes and is not conducive to a sustained economic recovery," said Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group.
