The S&P Global Malaysia Manufacturing PMI dropped to 50.1 in May 2022 from 51.6 in the prior month, signalling a stagnation in manufacturing operating conditions, as new order growth eased sharply, while output volumes were scaled back for fifth consecutive month, amid raw material shortages and rising prices. At the same time, input purchasing fell, amid supply chain disruption, as shortages of freight capacity and raw materials were exacerbated by renewed lockdown restrictions in China. Employment dropped at the fastest pace since August 2020, as business continued to report difficulty in sourcing foreign workers, with backlogs of work rising at the fastest pace in six months. On prices, input prices rose, due to increases in prices of raw material while output charges rose, as firms continued to partially pass higher cost burdens on to clients. Lastly, sentiment improved from April's eight-month low, amid hopes that end of the pandemic would encourage a full easing of restrictions. source: Markit Economics
