- Markit manufacturing PMI (final) 62.1 versus 62.6 preliminary. Although lower than the preliminary, the 62.1 level is still tied for the highest level since the start of the series in May 2007 (last month the index was also at 62.1)

- Final output index for June comes in at 58.9 versus flash reading of 59.2. May was at 59.6

- The upturn was supported by further marked expansions in
output and new orders, but supply chain disruptions worsened and
weighed on production capacity.
- Vendor performance deteriorated
to the greatest extent on record. Input costs meanwhile showed the
largest jump on record, feeding through to another record rise in
factory selling prices
export orders meanwhile rose solidly in June, albeit at the softest
pace for three months.
- Suppliers’ delivery times lengthened to the greatest extent on
record in June, as component shortages and transportation issues
exacerbated supply-chain woes.
- Firms indicated a solid rise in
employment during June. The rate of job creation was the slowest
for six months, however, as companies reported difficulties enticing
workers back. Labour shortages exacerbated pressure on capacity,
as backlogs of work rose at one of the steepest rates on record.
