Output growth grind to a near-standstill pace and new orders contract for the first time in 17 months. Across industries, consumer goods producers saw a marked downturn in output, while robust expansion was again registered in the investment goods industry. Meanwhile, increased employment was linked to higher output, staff shortages and efforts to reduce backlogs of work. Also, inflationary pressures remained elevated due to raw material shortages, stretched supply chains, higher prices for commodities, electronics, energy, oil, paper, plastics and timber. Higher costs were passed on, in part, to clients in the form of increased selling prices. Finally, business optimism dipped to its lowest since May 2020. source: Markit Economics

UK Manufacturing PMI at 23-Month Low
The S&P/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to a 23-month low 53.4 in June of 2022 from 54.6 in May, missing market expectations of 53.7. Output growth slowed the most since February of 2021 amid weaker demand and significant supply issues. To add, new order volumes were slightly lower, pointing to the weakest performance in two years with stronger declines in export orders. On the other hand, staffing numbers were seen higher among UK manufacturers. On the price front, input inflation was pushed up by higher energy costs and raw material prices, although the overall gauge eased to a four-month low. Looking forward, inflation concerns and impending cutbacks to spending pressured business confidence to its lowest since the start of the pandemic.

UK Manufacturing PMI Confirmed at 16-Month Low
The S&P Global/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to 54.6 in May of 2022 from 55.8 in April, pointing to the slowest growth in factory activity since January last year, and in lie with preliminary estimates. The slowdown was driven by weaker growth of domestic demand, lower intakes of new export work and ongoing disruption caused by stretched supply chains, rising cost pressures and the war in Ukraine. Output, new orders, employment all rose at a softer pace while input cost inflation eased from April's near-survey record high although chemicals, energy, food, freight, fuels, gas, metals, oil, plastics, polymers, timber, and transportation were all reported as being up in price. China lockdowns, exchange rate factors, sanctions on Russia, the war in Ukraine, supply chain disruption and raw material scarcity also drove up purchasing costs. As a result, selling prices rose at a rate close to April's survey record high. Meanwhile, business confidence slipped to a 17-month low.
