The S&P Global India Manufacturing PMI fell to a three-month low of 55.4 in January of 2023 from 57.8 in December while pointing to the 19th straight month of expansion. Both output and new orders grew at softer paces, with foreign sales increasing the least in ten months, while input buying also eased despite the level of growth remaining strong. Meanwhile, employment was broadly unchanged, as outstanding business volumes rose at a slight pace that was weaker than in December and historically muted. Firms pointed to a lack of pressure on the capacity of their suppliers, with delivery times shortening. On the price front, input cost inflation was at a 3-month high, linked to higher prices for items like energy, metal, and electronic components, but was well below its long-run average. Selling prices, meantime, rose further despite slowing from December. Finally, sentiment slipped to a six-month low, though remained above its long-run trend. source: Markit Economics

India Manufacturing PMI
The S&P Global India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 500 manufacturing 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.
