In a recent article from Manufacturing Monthly, the Australian Performance of Manufacturing Index (Australian PMI) was up 14% from June. The July reading saw the market grow above 50, correlating to growth. Four of the seven activity sub-indexes were also up: Manufacturing sales increased for the first time in 14 months by 12.9 points, production and supplier deliveries also grew up 10.6 and 6.3 points respectively. The overall increase in the manufacturing industry is welcomed news to some. Unfortunately the machinery and equipment sector dropped slightly, which is said to be due to the lack of demand in the mining-related construction.
