The IHS Markit France Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.2 in October of 2018 from 52.5 in September, in line with the preliminary estimate. The reading pointed to the weakest expansion in manufacturing activity since September 2016, as output contracted for the first time since July 2016. Also, new orders rose at the softest pace in four months, amid lower market demand; new export orders dropped for the third time in four months due to a weak automotive sector and the rate of job creation eased to a two-year low. On the price front, input price inflation advanced at the fastest pace in 8 months, as higher prices in raw materials were reported, namely oil, steel and aluminium; and output cost rose the most since June. Finally, business confidence eased to 28-month low. Manufacturing PMI in France is reported by Markit Economics.
