IHS Markit Global Sector PMI™
Jun 2020
  Output falls across all sectors in May, albeit at generally slower rates  

Key findings:

  • Output indices mostly rise from record April lows but still indicate marked reductions in activity
  • Tourism & recreation again sees fastest rate of decline, followed by transportation
  • Healthcare services posts slowest decline in activity, but still a record drop for the sector

Global Sector PMI indices are compiled from responses to questionnaires sent to purchasing managers in IHS Markit's global PMI survey panels. Indices are available for the basic materials, consumer goods, consumer services, financials, healthcare, industrials, technology and telecommunication services industry groups, and sub-sectors of these groups.

The ongoing lockdowns across the globe to combat the coronarvirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continued to severely restrict all sectors monitored in May. With the exception of healthcare services, which suffered a record fall in activity following April's strong increase, all sectors recorded either the second- or third-fastest rates of decline in output since the global data were first compiled in October 2009.

The fastest overall rate of contraction was again in tourism & recreation, despite a 16-point rebound in its Business Activity Index since April's nadir of 10.6. Transportationregistered the second-fastest drop in activity of all sectors. The two healthcare sectors – healthcare services and pharmaceuticals & biotechnology – registered the slowest declines in May, followed by beverages & food.

In terms of output over the next 12 months, 11 sectors anticipate growth, including chemicals, forestry & paper products, automobiles & auto parts, beverages & food, household & personal use products, banks, other financials, pharmaceuticals & biotechnology, construction materials, technology equipment andsoftware & services.
