PMI
57

 

November 2016
Het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek berichtte deze maand dat het producentenvertrouwen licht gedaald was (van 4.3 in oktober naar 3.4 in november). Een waarde die nog ver boven het langjarig gemiddelde (o,6) ligt, maar toch... Dit lijkt het eerste signaal voor een afnemende groei. Is deze ontwikkeling ook al zichtbaar in de laatste cijfers van de NEVI-PMI? Het antwoord luidt: zeker niet. De NEVI PMI kwam over november uit op een waarde van 57.0, ruim boven die van oktober(55.7).Hiermee is de hoogste notering in 35 maanden bereikt. De groei in de industrie zet nog steeds door (waarde >50 wijst op toename van de bedrijfsactiviteiten). Oorzaken zijn gelegen in een sterke toename van de binnenlandse vraag (58.0) en de onverminderd sterke export (55.9). Gevolgen: bedrijven draaien op volle capaciteit en nemen meer personeel aan. Zij kopen ook veel meer in, mede ingegeven door de verwachte prijsverhogingen van grondstoffen. Dit leidt tot een aanwakkerende inkoopprijsinflatie (63.5) en stijgende verkoopprijzen. Het is heel goed mogelijk dat de groei hierdoor op middellange termijn zal gaan afvlakken. De conclusie is dat de industrie 2016 goed gaat uitluiden en een goede start zal hebben van het nieuwe jaar. Niettemin is het zaak zicht te houden op de horizon en de bedrijfsvoering verder te flexibiliseren. Ik houd mijn rapportcijfer op 8.0.
