The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) and the Bank of Mexico report that the Manufacturing Orders Index (MPI) with seasonally adjusted data for December 2020 showed a monthly increase of 0.63 points, to 51.5 points. Thus, the MPI was above the 50-point threshold for the fifth month in a row, after having spent six months below that level.

“With seasonally adjusted figures, the December 2020 MPI component corresponding to expected order volume registered a monthly increase of 0.83 points, expected production volume decreased by 0.01 points, expected personnel employment level increased by 0.96 points, supplier input delivery increased by 1.89 points and input inventory increased by 0.63 points,” the statement says.

It adds that, in December 2020, the MPI stood at 50.6 points with non-seasonal data, an annual growth of 2.3 points. It also shows that with figures without seasonal adjustment, the five items that make up the MPI showed annual increases in the last month of 2020.
