The IHS Markit Germany Manufacturing PMI rose to 43.6 in August 2019 from a seven-year low of 43.2 in the previous month and above market expectations of 43, a preliminary estimate showed. Still, the latest reading pointed to the eight month of contraction in the manufacturing sector, as new orders fell the most since April on the back of weak external demand. In addition, employment contracted the most since July 2012 and outstanding business continued to decline. On the price front, goods producers recorded a further sharp drop in input costs and a subsequent reduction in factory gate charges. Looking ahead, business confidence was the weakest since that series began in mid-2012. Manufacturing PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.

Manufacturing PMI in Germany is expected to be 45.90 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.
