Euro Area Manufacturing PMI  2007-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The IHS Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI came in at 54.6 in August 2018, unchanged from the preliminary estimate and down from July’s 55.1. The reading pointed to the weakest pace of expansion in the manufacturing sector since November 2016, as new orders increased at the slowest rate for two years and export order growth was unchanged at a near two-year low. In addition, employment rose the least since February 2017 and business optimism weakened amid global trade tensions and the possibility of further tariff impositions. On the price front, input cost pressures remained elevated. Among Eurozone's largest economies, growth slowed in Germany, Italy and Austria; but picked up in France, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands and Greece. Manufacturing PMI in the Euro Area is reported by Markit Economics.
