The Standard Bank South Africa PMI decreased to 46.90 in October of 2018 from 48 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the fourth straight month of contraction in private sector activity and the steepest since July 2014. Output declined the most since July 2014 and new orders dropped sharply, as foreign demand continued to fall amid volatility of the currency. In addition, both business activity and purchasing activity declined at the quickest pace in 51 months, due to falling sales and higher prices. Meantime, employment rose for first time since June. In terms of prices, input price inflation continued to rise and output price inflation increased to a 27-month high, as higher fuel prices and the weakness of the rand raised cost burdens. Finally, business confidence was stronger than in September. Composite Pmi in South Africa is reported by Markit Economics.
