The S&P Global France Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 50.5 in January 2023, down from a preliminary estimate of 50.8 and compared with December final reading of 49.2. Still, the latest PMI figure pointed to the first month of expansion in the sector since last August, at a rate that was only marginal, helped by a rebound in employment and a softer decrease in new orders. Still, factory output levels fell for an eighth successive month, due in part to high energy costs, and new business received from overseas clients dropped at the joint-quickest pace since May 2020. On the price front, input cost inflation slowed to a 25-month low, although selling prices increased at the fastest pace since last July. Finally, business confidence improved slightly, with growth expectations for the coming year at their most optimistic in five months. source: Markit Economics

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.
