U.S. ISM PMI in Manufacturing and Euroland’s IHS PMI Compared

June 1, 2021

The ISM-compiled purchasing managers index rose half an index point to 61.2 in May, while the IHS-compiled euro area PMI edged 0.2 points higher to 63.1. The differential between the two compilations became 0.3 points less favorable toward Euroland. Each survey signifies¬† historically robust activity, and so does IHS’s U.S. index, which climbed 0.6 points higher to 62.1 in May.

Euroland’s factory PMI was at a new record high last month, and so were the individual PMI readings for Austria, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain and Greece.

The ISM U.S. index had reached its record high in March of 64.7. Between April and May, the sub-index for demand jumped 2.7 points, the indices for production, employment and prices slipped between the months.
