November 2020 - OVERVIEW

Manufacturing stabilises in November

The Australian Industry Group Australian Performance of Manufacturing Index (Australian PMI®) declined 4.2 points to 52.1 points (seasonally adjusted), indicating expanding conditions in November but at a slower rate than in October. Results above 50 points indicate expansion with higher results indicating a faster rate of expansion.

The result largely reflects stabilisation in conditions after a bounce-back into positive territory, following Victoria’s easing of activity restrictions in October. South Australia had the largest fall of any state due to lost production from the three-day shutdown. Still, it remained in positive territory because of robust agricultural conditions, which boosted demand for food & beverage and machinery & equipment manufacturers. Victoria recorded its first month of expansion since March.
