The Nikkei Malaysia Manufacturing PMI fell to 47.6 in February of 2019 from 47.9 in the previous month and marking the fifth straight month of contraction. Both output and new orders extended declines. Asian markets were cited as a drag on export sales. Meantime, employment stagnated, as hiring in some firms contrasted with job cuts in others due to reduced demand. On the price front, input prices fell marginally amid reports of favourable exchange rate movements, enabling firms to leave output prices broadly unchanged. Meanwhile, output charges stopped rising for the first time in eight months amid a fractional fall in operating costs. Looking ahead, sentiment towards output over the coming 12 months remained positive despite dipping since January. Forecasts of improved demand and planned new product launches supported optimism.
