The Commonwealth Bank Manufacturing PMI in Australia fell to 49.9 in December 2019 from 50 in the previous month, matching a preliminary estimate and market expectations. The reading pointed to the first contraction in factory activity since series began in over three-and-a-half years, as new orders dropped at the steepest pace on record and output went down for the third consecutive month. Backlogs of work declined for the fifth straight month and the job creation rate slowed. On the price front, input prices rose at a solid pace mostly driven by a weak exchange rate and higher costs for raw materials in particular food, paper and wool; and output cost inflation accelerated to a four-month high. Lastly, sentiment deteriorated to a near three-and-a-half year low due to economic conditions, a slowing housing market and worsening drought-related disruptions. Industrial Sentiment in Australia averaged 53.95 Index Points from 2016 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 57.20 Index Points in December of 2016 and a record low of 49.90 Index Points in November of 2019. source: Markit Economics
