UK Sees Solid Growth in September Manufacturing PMI


The Nikkei ASEAN Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, decreased marginally in September, but signaled a further improvement in operating conditions across the region.

Claus Vistesen, the chief eurozone economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said Germany's score of 60.6 indicated that its manufacturing sector was "firing on all cylinders". Meanwhile, output price inflation softened.

But Harker noted there had been signs of strain in supply chains due to shortages of raw materials, which led to delivery delays and price rises.

"After having improved in August for the first time in four months, business conditions in the Malaysian manufacturing sector were broadly unchanged in September".

IHS Markit director Rob Dobson said rising cost pressures are likely to impact company profit and could disrupt production in the short term.

The latest gain in new orders was slower than the prior survey month, companies reported that demand remained solid in both domestic and overseas markets.

Mr Dobson said: "Although it looks as if the sector made solid progress through the third quarter as a whole, the growth slowdown in September is a further sign that momentum is being lost across the broader United Kingdom economy".

Job creation slowed from August's three-year high, but was described as "broadbased" spanning across the consumer, intermediate and investment goods industries.

"The annual MHA Manufacturing and Engineering report released last month found that despite the uncertainty from Brexit, the majority of businesses have achieved growth over the past 12 months and remain optimistic about the future", he said.
