Globalni proizvodni indeks JP Morgan Global Manufacturing je pokazal, da je bilo razpoloženja v svetovni industriji konec julija (55,4) precej podobno tistemu v juniji (55,5), oziroma, da dvig okužb v nekaterih večjih državah ni prispeval k poslabšanju pričakovanj o prihodnjem ali aktualnem poslovanju. Vsi trije glavni tipi predelovalnih dejavnostih so beležili rast, najpočasnejšo kategorija izdelkov za potrošnike, kjer pa se je rast sicer pospešila. Najboljša slika v predelovalnih dejavnostih je bila na Nizozemskem, v Nemčiji, Avstriji, ZDA, medtem ko sta na drugi strani precej pod povprečjem bili Kitajska (50,3) in Japonska (53). Vzhajajoči trgi Azije so bili še posebej šibki, saj se je aktivnost na Tajskem, Maleziji, Vietnamu, Indoneziji in Mjanmaru celo znižala.
