The IHS Markit Italy Manufacturing PMI fell to 49.2 in October 2018 from 50 in the previous month and below market expectations of 49.6. The latest reading pointed to the first month of contraction since August 2016 and the sharpest fall in business conditions since December 2014. New sales decreased the most in almost five-and-a-half years as new business from abroad dropped for the first time in nearly six years. In addition, employment growth was modest and backlogs of work fell for the seventh successive month, while inventories of finished goods rose the most in four years. On the price front, input prices rose at a sharp pace, but charges increased at a slower rate. Optimism regarding the year ahead outlook for output weakened from September amid worries over political stability and future export trade. Manufacturing PMI in Italy is reported by Markit Economics.
