Hong Kong Private Sector PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The seasonally adjusted Nikkei Hong Kong PMI edged up to 48.5 in August of 2018 from 48.2 in the previous month. It was the fifth straight month of contraction in private sector activity as Chinese demand for Hong Kong’s products and services shrank for the fourth straight month amid escalating trade tensions. Output and new orders fell further, and lower employment continued to be reported. On the price front, milder cost pressures were observed, with overall input price inflation easing to the weakest in just over a year. Higher prices for raw materials and Hong Kong dollar weakness were pointed as main reasons for inflation. Conversely, firms reduced output prices to boost sales. Finally, business confidence was the lowest in 20 months, with US-China trade tensions being a key concern. Also, competitive pressures and dollar strength weigh on sentiment. Manufacturing PMI in Hong Kong is reported by Markit Economics.
