The Caixin China General Composite PMI dropped to 50.6 in June 2021 from 53.8 a month earlier. This was the lowest reading since April 2020, due to concerns over the epidemic situation in the export hub of Guangdong that led to a reintroduction of travel restrictions, with activity in both the manufacturing and service sectors growing at softer paces. New orders softened to a 14-month low, while employment meanwhile fell fractionally. Inflationary pressures meanwhile eased. Input cost inflation softened to an eight-month low, while prices charged went up slightly. "The manufacturing has returned to normal in the wake of the epidemic, while the services industry is still sensitive to regional resurgences," said Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group. "In addition, the low base effect from last year will continue to weaken in the second half of this year. Inflationary pressure, intertwined with the economic slowdown, will still be a serious challenge.” source: Markit Economics

China Private Sector Growth Remains Robust: Caixin
The Caixin China General Composite PMI dropped to 53.8 in May 2021 from a four-month high of 54.7 in April 2021. Still, the latest reading remained above the long-run trend, with both factory activity and the services sector continuing to expand. New orders rose solidly, with the rate of increase little-changed from the previous month. Meantime, employment grew for the third month running, albeit modestly. Prices data, meanwhile, pointed to the quickest rise in composite input costs since December 2016, which led to the steepest rise in output charges since February 2011. Finally, sentiment stayed upbeat. "Inflationary pressure would limit the room for monetary policy maneuvering, which could hinder the economic recovery. Some enterprises began to hoard goods in response to rising raw material prices, while others suffered raw material shortages," said. Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Insight Group.

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

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.
