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

The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI unexpectedly fell to 51.0 in March of 2018 from 51.6 in the prior month, missing market consensus of 51.8. It was the weakest reading since November, as both output and new orders grew the least in four months, while export sales increased only marginally. At the same time, employment contracted the most in seven months, leading to a further rise in backlogs of work. Still, confidence towards the 12-month outlook for production improved to a one-year high in March. On the price front, average input price inflation continued to soften from September’s recent peak, while factory gate prices increased only modestly. “The manufacturing PMI reading in March showed that demand was not as strong as expected, leading to lower willingness of manufacturers to produce and restock," Zhengsheng Zhong, analyst at CEBM Group, a subsidiary of Caixin, said. Manufacturing PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
