Markit Economics released its final manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) for the Eurozone on Monday. Eurozone's final manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) rose to 53.2 in December from 52.8 in November, up from the preliminary reading of 53.1.
Production and employment grew in all countries.
"The end of 2015 saw the Eurozone manufacturing recovery gain further traction, with rates of expansion in production and new orders over the final quarter besting those of quarter three. The sector is therefore likely to make a meaningful positive contribution to the euro GDP numbers for quarter four," Rob Dobson, Senior Economist at Markit said.
