The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI fell to a five-month low of 60.3 in September 2021 from 62.8 a month earlier and May's all-time high of 64.1. Growth rates for output, new orders, employment and purchasing all remained relatively strong, and backlogs rose at one of the fastest rates on record. That said, all these variables registered slower expansions than in recent months. Stocked inputs rose again, and the rate of growth was the third-highest on record despite slowing since August. This partly reflected the build-up of unused raw materials due to shortages of key components such as semiconductors. Meantime, suppliers' delivery times continued to lengthen markedly. On the cost side, input price inflation rebounded sharply to set a new survey record high while , output price inflation also accelerated to a new series high. Finally, sentiment remained positive and improved slightly since August. source: Markit Economics

Irish Factory Growth Stays Robust
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI fell to a four-month low of 62.8 in August 2021 from 63.3 a month earlier and May's all-time high of 64.1. Rates of growth in output, new orders, exports, and purchasing all slowed but remained among the highest ever recorded. At the same time, backlogs increased at a record pace, in a further sign that supply bottlenecks had constrained output. Moreover, stocks of unused inputs were accumulated at a record rate as firms reported shortages of key components. Suppliers' delivery times continued to lengthen to a near-record degree. On the cost side, input price inflation eased further from June's near-record high to a six-month low, but was still among the strongest ever recorded. Output prices rose at the third-fastest pace on record, behind only those registered in June and July. Finally, sentiment remained strongly positive, despite easing since July.

Irish Manufacturing Sector Maintains Rapid Growth
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI fell to a three-month low of 63.3 in July 2021 from 64.0 a month earlier and May's all-time high of 64.1. Still, the latest figure signaled a rapid improvement in the sector at the start of H2 and stronger growth than in any preceding period since the survey began in 1998, as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. New order growth hit a new record high for the third month running, leading to unprecedented increases in both purchasing and backlogs of work. Output rose rapidly but was partly constrained by ongoing supply shortages. Meantime, the sector continued to add to the size of its workforce, with employment rising for the tenth month running. On the cost side, price pressures remained severe, and output price inflation accelerated to a new survey record pace. Finally, sentiment strengthened following June's brief dip

Ireland Manufacturing PMI
The AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI Ireland measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 258 industrial 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.
