The Nikkei Malaysia Manufacturing PMI dropped to 48.8 in May 2019 from April's seven-month high of 49.4 and slightly below its long-run average. New export orders returned to contraction amid rising global headwind; and buying levels fell, partly due to an increased focus on cost control. At the same time, the survey’s output gauge held close to April’s six-month high, suggesting the forces weighing on output growth have eased; while employment was broadly stable. Meantime, total new orders run at its second-highest since the third quarter of last year. In terms of prices, operating cost rose the most since last November, amid unfavourable exchange rate conditions and higher prices of raw materials while, output prices increased at the quickest rate in six months as firms sought to protect margins. Finally, sentiment hit its highest since October 2013, boosted by planned new product launches and expectations of stronger demand, particularly from overseas markets.
