The manufacturing sector has been slowing in China last year as the rest of the global economy weakened. In December, this sector of the Chinese economy fell into contraction since the PMI indicator fell below the 50 level, as the report released in January showed. It weakened further in January, with the Chinese Manufacturing PMI indicator falling to 49.5 points. We saw a further contraction in February to 49.2 points. Although, in March this sector came back to expansion with the PMI indicator jumping to 50.5 points, which improved the sentiment in financial markets. It slowed down to 50.1 points again in April, which is very close to contraction and in May it fell to 49.4 points, where it remained during June as well. It improved slightly in July, but fell to 49.5 points in August. In September we saw another increase to 49.8 points, but manufacturing continued to remain in contraction, until November, when it jumped to 50.2 points, beating expectations and coming out of contraction. But, coronavirus came and ruined everything for everyone, with Chinese manufacturing PMI indicator falling to 35.7 points which means a very deep contraction. Although, manufacturing bounced back to 52.0 in March in China, but it slowed to just 50.6 points in May. Although it increased to 50.9 points in June and it remained at around 51.5 points, until November when it increased to 52.1 points. But returned down to 51.3 points again in January, although it increased to 51.9 points in March, while in April it is expected to jump to 55.9 points.
