The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI edged up to 51.1 in October of 2018 from 50.9 in September. Job creation was only slightly but was the highest since March. New orders grew but at a smaller rate than in the previous month, boosted by the launch of new products and continuous improvements in demand. Also, production rose marginally amid political uncertainty and new export orders declined further due to lower demand from Argentina. Mild increases in new work coupled with job creation led to a further decline in outstanding business. On the price front, currency weakness continued to drive input costs higher as the price of imported materials became costlier. However, business confidence was the lowest in three months, dragged down by worries about high unemployment and economic uncertainty. Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is reported by Markit Economics.

Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is expected to be 51.40 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate Manufacturing PMI in Brazil to stand at 51.80 in 12 months time. In the long-term, the Brazil Manufacturing PMI is projected to trend around 50.00 in 2020, according to our econometric models.
