China Caixin Manufacturing PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI fell to a 14-month low of 50.6 in August of 2018 from 50.8 in the previous month and matching market consensus. New orders grew the least since May 2017; new export orders shrank for the fifth month in a row; and employment remained on a downward trend, which, in turn, contributed to an increase in outstanding workloads. Also, confidence remained stuck near June's six-month low, affected by the ongoing China-US trade war and relatively subdued market conditions. At the same time, buying activity continued to rise but below the series average, while output growth accelerated. On the price front, inflationary pressure picked up, with firms noting steeper increases in both input costs and output charges. “China’s economy is now facing relatively obvious downward pressure, "said Zhengsheng Zhong, director of macroeconomic analysis at CEBM Group. Manufacturing PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
