South Korea Manufacturing PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Nikkei South Korea Manufacturing PMI dropped to 49.1 in March of 2018 from 50.3 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the most marked deterioration in business conditions for manufacturers since July last year, as output fell the most since August and new business shrank for the first time in ten months. Also, new export orders declined the most in 17 months on weaker demand from China, India, Japan and the US, and business sentiment hit the lowest level in three months. On the price front, although input costs rose sharply, the rate of inflation eased to a three-month low. In turn, firms raised factory gate charges for a seventh straight month.
