The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to 47.4 in August 2019 from 48.0 in the previous month and below market expectations of 48.4. The latest reading pointed to the steepest month of contraction in the manufacturing sector since July 2012, as new orders fell the most in over seven years, amid ongoing global trade tensions, slower world economic growth and Brexit uncertainty. In addition, employment fell at one of the fastest rates over the past six-and-a-half years, while stocks of finished goods moved mildly higher and input inventories edged lower. On the price front, input cost inflation remained solid and average selling prices continued to rise. Looking ahead, business optimism slumped to its lowest level since a question tracking expectations for future output was added to the survey in July 2012. Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.

Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is expected to be 48.50 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.
