The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI came in at 52.2 in October 2018, slightly below a preliminary 52.3 and compared with September's final figure of 53.7. The latest reading pointed to the weakest pace of expansion in the manufacturing sector since May 2016 as new orders fell for the first time since November 2014 and export sales dropped the most for over five years amid troubles in the automotive sector and hesitancy among foreign clients. In addition, output growth was the weakest since November 2014 and the pace of job creation moderated. On the price front, input cost inflation picked up from a 12-month low in September while output prices rose the least since July last year. Manufacturers' expectations for output in the year ahead turned negative for the first time in four years on the back of concerns over a slowing economy, issues across the car industry and geopolitical frictions. Manufacturing PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
