The IHS Markit Malaysia Manufacturing PMI fell to a four month-low of 47.6 in July 2019 from 47.8 in June. Softer demand has put further pressure on production and deterred firms from increasing their work forces. At the same time, buying activity were tapered, as has been the case since last October, while stocks of inputs and semi-manufactured items were also pared back. Meanwhile, export sales rose for the first time since April, with the US, Japan and Turkey being mentioned as particular sources of higher external demand. In terms of prices, input price inflation eased to a three-month low from May’s recent high. Firms raised their output charges marginally, in most cases to partly share greater cost burdens with customers. Lastly, sentiment remained resilient, though the July survey saw optimism pull back from June's 68-month peak. Manufacturing Pmi in Malaysia is reported by Markit Economics.
