April 2024 Production Times

This month, production times have remained constant, with the average period for order completion steady at 56.5 days.

Manufacturing sector conditions in China further improved in March, according to the latest PMI® data. Showing signs of stabilizing growth, this increase marks the fifth straight month of expansion in manufacturing activity due in large part to enhanced overseas demand. Factories also increased their purchases of raw material and boosted raw material inventories amid continued business optimism. These developments are a welcomed sign and indicate a potential improvement in manufacturing times ahead.
