The UniCredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell to 60.6 in October of 2021 from 62.8 in the previous month, pointing to the slowest expansion in factory activity since February. Output and new orders rose the least in nine months, amid reports of shortages of input materials, supply chain issues, price pressures and weaker demand, especially in the automotive sector. Stocks of finished goods rose for the first time in 16 months due to postponement or cancellation of orders by some customers, and due to deliberate safety stock building by some manufacturers. Meanwhile, the pace of factory job creation remained strong. On the price front, input price inflation was just below July's all-time high, while output prices increased the most on record as manufacturers passed higher input costs to customers. Looking ahead, manufacturers' expectations were the weakest since last November as they showed less optimism towards output for the coming year. source: Markit Economics

Looking forward, manufacturer’s expectations ticked up slightly since July and they have reported strong optimism for the coming year.
