France Manufacturing PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit France Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 53.5 in August of 2018 from a preliminary of 53.7 but higher than 53.3 in July. Stronger output and new business growth were the main factors behind the improved PMI figure. The upturn in order books was largely driven by domestic demand as export sales picked up only slightly since the previous month. On the other hand, job creation was the lowest since May of 2017 amid subdued optimism about the business outlook. On the price front, input inflation was nearly steady while the output one softened. Business confidence was the lowest in more than a year-and-a-half amid concerns about global trade tensions and subdued export demand. Manufacturing PMI in France is reported by Markit Economics.
