United Kingdom Manufacturing PMI  2008-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to 53.9 in April 2018 from a downwardly revised 54.9 in the previous month and missing market expectations of 54.8. The reading pointed to the weakest pace of expansion in the manufacturing sector since November 2016, as growth of output and new orders eased, with exports rising the least in ten months, while business optimism dipped to a five-month low. Also, the rate of job creation eased to the weakest in 14 months. Falling backlogs of work, supply-chain constraints and rising stocks of finished goods signalled that output growth will remain subdued in the coming months. On the price front, input cost inflation slowed to a nine-month low and output charges rose the least since last August. Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
