Austria Factory Activity Remains Weak in June
The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI increased to 46.5 in June 2020 from 40.04 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the weakest contraction in four months, amid the further easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions. Output shrank at a softest pace in the current four-month sequence of contraction and new orders dropped at the slowest rate since February as domestic demand firmed up more quickly than foreign. The job shedding rate eased to a four-month low, while stocks of finished goods rose albeit at a softer pace. On the price front, input prices declined at the fastest rate since July 2012 amid weak demand for raw materials and semi-manufactured goods, and output charges dropped at the greatest extent since May 2009 linked to widespread discounting due to strong competition for new work. Lastly, sentiment remained negative amid concerns over a potential longer-term squeeze on consumer spending.

Austria Manufacturing PMI at Record Low
The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI tumbled to a record low of 31.6 in April of 2020 from 45.8 in the previous month. Like output, new orders across the Austrian manufacturing sector showed an unprecedented collapse in April, with firms reporting order cancellations or postponements, client closures, and general uncertainty weighing on demand. Data showed a similarly sharp drop in export sales, reflecting the global nature of the COVID-19 outbreak. The decline in activity led manufacturers to cut workforce numbers at the fastest pace in more than 11 years. Finally, business confidence hit a record low for the second successive month. Many firms feared long-lasting effects from the pandemic, including extended disruption to production and supply, and a weak investment outlook.
