The Nikkei Taiwan Manufacturing PMI dropped to 48.7 in October 2018 from 50.8 in a month earlier. The latest reading pointed to the first contraction in factory activity since May 2016, as output fell for the second month in a row, and at the steepest pace since September 2015. Also, new orders contracted the most in over three years while purchasing activity shrank for the first time since May 2016, while a lack of stock at suppliers contributed to a further marked increase in delivery times for inputs. Meantime, companies were pessimistic towards the 12 month business outlook. Confidence towards future output was also dampened due to concerns over the ongoing China-US trade dispute. Manufacturing PMI in Taiwan is reported by Markit Economics.
