The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell to 53.9 in December 2018 from 54.9 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the second lowest expansion in factory activity in over two years, as output and employment advanced at a softer pace. Also, new orders slowed as exports declined the most since August 2016 mainly due to lower demand from the automotive sector and a slowdown in sales to emerging markets. Additionally, purchasing activity rose at the weakest pace in more than two-years-and-a-half. On the price front, input cost inflation eased to a 16-month low partly linked to a decrease in oil prices and output cost inflation increased, still at a slower rate than in the prior month. Finally, business confidence remained subdued with the degree of optimism at the second-weakest in almost four years. Manufacturing PMI in Austria is reported by Markit Economics.
