Hong Kong Private Sector PMI  2011-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The seasonally adjusted Nikkei Hong Kong PMI fell to 49.7 in August of 2017 from 51.3. It was the first contraction in private sector activity since March, due to declines in output, new orders and employment while export orders growth to China slowed. In addition, firms remained pessimistic about the business outlook over the next twelve months. Meantime, buying activity rose noticeably less than in a month earlier. Backlogs continued to increase with some firms suggesting that those were partially due to limits placed on output to comply with Chinese environmental-related laws. On the price front, input cost inflation picked up, ending the recent easing trend. Companies passed on some of their higher costs by raising selling prices, although the rate of increase remained modest. Manufacturing PMI in Hong Kong is reported by Markit Economics.
