Israel: Manufacturing PMI falls in July

August 18, 2019

The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), produced by Bank Hapoalim and the Israeli Purchasing & Logistics Managers Association (IPLMA), fell from 52.7 in June to 52.2 in July, but remained above the neutral 50-point mark separating expansion from contraction in the manufacturing sector.

The fall in the headline figure was driven by weaker domestic demand and employment growth, and lower exports.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants expect fixed investment to increase 4.6% in 2019. For 2020, panelists expect fixed investment to expand 3.1%.
