The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.5 in April 2019 from 52.8 in the previous month, signaling the weakest pace of expansion in the manufacturing sector since October last year. Output growth moderated to a five-month low and new orders rose the least since July 2018 due to a further contraction in external demand. In addition, both job creation and input buying growth were the weakest in four months. However, inventories of raw materials and semi-finished items continued to increase, as well as stocks of finished products. On the price front, input cost inflation quickened to a six-month high while selling price inflation softened. Looking ahead, business sentiment strengthened to the second-highest level since April 2012 as manufacturers expect product innovation, better export opportunities and favourable economic conditions to support output growth. Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is reported by Markit Economics.

Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is expected to be 51.60 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.
