The headline AIB Ireland Manufacturing PMI® is a composite single-figure indicator of manufacturing performance. It is derived from indicators for new orders, output, employment, suppliers’ delivery times and stocks of purchases. Any figure greater than 50.0 indicates overall improvement of the sector.
The PMI registered 51.5 in September, up slightly from August’s 22-month low of 51.1, indicating a twenty-fourth successive overall improvement in operating conditions in the goods producing
sector. The rate of growth was the second-weakest since October 2020 and only modest, with the PMI remaining below its long-run average of 52.3.
