Mexico - Industry

After flatlining in Q4, the economy appeared to gain steam in Q1, aided chiefly by a stronger automotive industry and the fading impact of last year’s labor outsourcing ban supporting the services sector. However, a surge in Covid-19 cases and ensuing worker absences should have capped momentum early in the period, with higher interest rates and business uncertainty creating additional drags throughout the quarter. Looking at available indicators, economic activity growth ebbed in January but remained solid, while the manufacturing and services PMIs improved in February and March. In addition, remittances continued to expand by double digits through February, which should have supported private consumption. Finally, vehicle production reached the highest level since November 2020 in March, following a prolonged production downturn due to semiconductor shortages.
