The IHS Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI was revised slightly higher to 58.6 in February of 2018 from a preliminary of 58.5. Although the reading pointed to the slowest expansion in factory output in four months, the manufacturing sector's performance remained one of the strongest seen over the 20-year survey history. Growth of new orders, output and backlogs of work eased and selling price inflation accelerated to an 82-month high, despite slower increase in input costs. On the other hand, employment gains were broad based. Business confidence remained strong but fell from a record level in January. Manufacturing PMI in the Euro Area is reported by Markit Economics.
