The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI came in at 52.6 in December 2018, little-changed from November's eight-month high of 52.7. Production and sales increased the most since March, while new export orders declined amid competitive pressures in external markets and ongoing economic troubles in Argentina. On the negative note, December data showed an overall decline in manufacturing jobs across Brazil, ending a two-month sequence of employment expansion. Elsewhere, there was a softer decline in outstanding workloads and another deterioration in suppliers' delivery times during December. On the price front, input cost inflation eased to the weakest in almost one-and-a-half years, while manufacturers lifted their selling prices to the least extent in 15 months. Looking ahead, business sentiment was second-highest in series history on the back of confidence in the new government, anticipations of greater market shares and investment plans. Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is reported by Markit Economics.
