The global economy expanded for a seventeenth straight month in November, according to the JPMorgan Global PMI™ (compiled by IHS Markit). The rate of expansion improved from October and was the quickest in fourth months, supported by growth of new orders, exports and a rise in employment levels.

Both manufacturing and service sectors recorded growth in output with services outpacing manufacturing for the eighth straight month, though manufacturing production rose at a faster rate than October.

Signs of supply constraints continuing to plague the manufacturing sector were again evident, particularly in the US and Europe. Supplier delays and increased backlogs of work were seen through the PMI sub-indices. One positive sign had been rising Asian output supporting global manufacturing, though this was prior to the onset of the COVID-19 Omicron variant's global spread.
