The UK manufacturing sector continued its recovery from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) induced downturn earlier in the year. Output and new orders increased as new work intakes improved from both domestic and overseas markets.
Survey data was collected 11-25 September.
The seasonally adjusted IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers’ Index® (PMI®) fell slightly to 54.1 in September, down from August’s two-and-a-half year high of 55.2. The PMI has remained above its no-change mark of 50.0 for four successive months, its longest sequence in expansion territory since early-2019.
