February 2024 Production Times

This month, there have been no changes in production times compared to the previous month, with the average duration for completing orders remaining stable at 59.5 days. A key factor in maintaining these consistent production times is the Chinese New Year holiday, which significantly impacts manufacturing activities across China. This annual holiday results in temporary factory shutdowns as workers return to their hometowns for celebrations. Operations are expected to resume fully by February 20th.

The wider economic context shows that China’s manufacturing sector continues to face challenges, but is showing some signs of life. China’s manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) unexpectedly reported a 50.8 in January 2024, the same as December’s figure but above market forecasts of 50.6. It was the third straight month of growth in factory activity, along with foreign sales growing for the first time in 7 months.
