Unique economic insight for better planning and analysis

360 Degree Perspective on what matters most to your business. Track market trends confidently using the PMI economic indicators by IHS Markit.

The numbers provide timely and accurate insight into economic conditions across the manufacturing and service sectors, with national PMI readings for the respective sectors based on survey responses from panels of senior purchasing executives (or similar) at more than 400 companies.

The PMI comprises two distinct data sets:

  • The “headline index” -- The latest monthly index readings released to the media and other interested parties free of charge. These readings provide a valuable snapshot of economic performance over a given month
  • Detailed data – Historical data for the headline index, combined with a considerable breadth of sub-index data covering variables such as new orders, exports, prices, employment and supplier delivery times. These detailed data are used by governments, financial institutions and corporates for forecasting, analysis and planning

The data sets are used as a critical input to everything from supply chain analysis to forecasting interest rate trends.

PMI coverage:

  • Global coverage: Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe
  • 26,000 companies surveyed monthly
  • 83% of global GDP
