The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell to a 16-month low of 56.6 in April of 2022 from 57.9 in the previous month. New orders contracted for first time in nearly two years, amid sharp price increases and economic uncertainty. In contrast, production increased slightly faster than the five-month low seen in April, driven by improved production capabilities and deliberate efforts to tackle backlogs of work. Pre-production inventories rose more than stocks of finished goods as firms over-purchased inputs to boost safety stocks to mitigate against supply issues. On the price front, supply-demand imbalances and elevated costs of energy and transportation, led to a further sharp increase in input prices and a consequent quickening of output charges. Finally, expectations towards future output hit a near two-year low, as inflationary pressures, the Russia-Ukraine war and continued supply chain disruptions, weighed on business confidence. source: Markit Economics

Austria Manufacturing PMI Edges Higher
The UniCredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI edged up to 59.3 in March of 2022 from 58.4 in the previous month, marking the 21st consecutive month of growth in the sector. Factory production levels continued to grow and remained above the long-term average. Meanwhile, manufacturers signaled a slower increase in inflows of new orders, while export demand rose the least for three months, mostly due to economic effects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. After improving in recent months, supply chain issues worsened in March due to challenges with material availability and transportation. At the same time, surging energy and commodity prices led input costs to accelerate at the fourth fastest pace on record. Still, employment growth across the sector was strong in March. Looking forward, soaring input prices and renewed supply chain disruptions brought future expectations to sink to 21-month lows.
