US Composite PMI Highest Since 2015: Markit
The IHS Markit US Composite PMI was revised higher to 58.6 in November 2020, up from a preliminary estimate of 57.9 and compared with October's 56.3. The latest reading signaled the steepest month of expansion in the US private sector business activity since March 2015, as manufacturing and service sector firms both recorded faster expansions in output. New order growth was the strongest since mid-2018, largely driven by domestic demand, as both goods producers and service providers indicated only marginal upturns in new export business. In addition, employment rose the most since the survey began in 2009. On the price front, both input costs and output charges rose at record rates. Looking ahead, business expectations strengthened to the highest since May 2014 amid vaccine hopes and signs of pent-up demand being released.

US Composite PMI at Over 5-1/2-Year High, Hiring at All-Time High
The IHS Markit US Composite PMI rose to 57.9 in November 2020 from 56.3 in the previous month, indicating the steepest month of expansion in the US private sector business activity in over five-and-a-half years, a preliminary estimate showed. New order growth was the strongest since June 2018, largely driven by domestic demand, as both goods producers and service providers indicated only marginal upturns in new export business. In addition, employment rose the most since the survey began in 2009. On the price front, firms raised their selling prices at the quickest pace on record due to improving demand environment. Input costs also increased at a record rate as demand for inputs and supply shortages reportedly pushed supplier prices higher. Looking ahead, business sentiment was the highest since May 2014 boosted by hopes of a vaccine against COVID-19, and an end to election uncertainty.

US Private Sector Output Growth at 29-month High
The IHS Markit US Composite PMI was revised higher to 56.3 in October of 2020 from a preliminary reading of 55.5 and 54.3 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the fourth successive expansion in private sector activity and the sharpest since May of 2018, driven by the strongest increase in service sector business activity since April 2015 (PMI at 56.9 from 54.6) alongside a more modest acceleration of manufacturing growth to an 11-month high (PMI at 53.4 from 53.2 in September). Contributing to output growth was the fastest rise in new business since February 2019. The improvement was driven by domestic demand, as new export orders almost stalled. Amid emerging reports of spare capacity, private sector firms indicated a slower rise in employment. Meanwhile, rates of input price and output charges inflation eased. Finally, companies were more upbeat regarding the outlook for output over the coming 12 months, with optimism surging by a survey record extent in October.
