All-Sector China Sales Managers Index Ticks Up in May, But Inflation Index Increases Sharply

  • The Headline Sales Index moved up in May to 51.3, suggesting modest growth in economic activity
  • Sales Managers continue to report a stagnant jobs market
  • ...but the price inflation index rose by an unusually rapid 2.1 points
Manufacturing, Services and other sector sales activity taken together was modest in May.

The Headline Index is 1.3 points above the no growth line, and the sub-indexes confirm growth remains subdued.

The most worrying signs are seen in the Job and Profit Indexes, both of which continue to register falls in activity, and the Prices Charged Index which jumped markedly in May.
