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

The seasonally adjusted Nikkei Hong Kong PMI rose to 51.1 in April of 2017 from 49.9 in March. It was the first expansion in private sector activity so far this year and the strongest since February 2014, driven by an increase in output and new orders while buying levels went up for the fifth month in a row. In April, output gained the most since February 2015, supported by improved global conditions, especially in the US. New orders rose for the first time in over 2 years. Also, pre-production inventories increased and suppliers were busier. Meanwhile, employment remained broadly stagnant amid subdued business sentiment. At the same time, inflationary pressures intensified, putting a squeeze on margins as firms continued to lower prices. Manufacturing PMI in Hong Kong averaged 49.36 from 2011 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 53.30 in February of 2014 and a record low of 44.40 in August of 2015.
