The market hasn't seen a manufacturing index below 50.0 for 17 months, but it is far from historical highs in March 2021.
On the other hand, services PMI was below 50 in April and December 2021.

Is PMI a leading indicator?
The PMI is widely seen as an accurate and timely indicator of business conditions that helps analysts and economists correctly anticipate changing economic trends in official data series such as gross domestic products (GDP), industrial production, employment, and inflation. In addition, because PMI data are sometimes released months ahead of comparable official data, the PMI surveys are ranked among the world's most market-moving economic data releases.
