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

The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI stood at 51.1 in April 2018, little-changed from the previous month's figure of 51.0 and above market consensus of 50.9. Output rose slightly faster, while new order growth slowed amid a renewed fall in new export orders. Also, employment continued to decline, contributing to a further increase in unfinished workloads. At the same time, buying activity increased modestly, while firms noted higher inventories of both inputs and finished items. Confidence towards the year ahead dipped to a four-month low in April. On the price front, inflationary pressures were relatively muted. "Operating conditions continued to improve in April, " said Zhengsheng Zhong, analyst at CEBM Group, a subsidiary of Caixin. "But uncertainty in exports has increased significantly, and the dependence of the Chinese economy on domestic demand is rising,” he added. Manufacturing PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
