Indian factory activity expands for fourth month in April - PMI

BENGALURU - Indian manufacturing activity expanded for a fourth consecutive month in April, helped by stronger growth in new orders although rises in output and employment slowed, a business survey showed on Tuesday. The Nikkei/Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, compiled by IHS Markit, held steady at March's 52.5 last month, its fourth month above the 50 mark that separates growth from contraction. "Consumers were the key drivers of growth," said Pollyanna De Lima, economist at IHS Markit.


"Buoyant domestic demand coupled with sustained growth of new orders from abroad boosted the upturn in total new business received by Indian manufacturers in April." A new orders sub-index rose to a six-month high of 53.8 last month from March's 53.6. Foreign demand also rose, although at a slower pace. The increase in demand only provided a more modest lift to overall output and employment as higher prices of raw materials ate into firms' profits.
