The Nikkei Taiwan Manufacturing PMI edged down to 47.5 in January 2019 from 47.7 in the previous month, pointing to the quickest deterioration in operating conditions in the manufacturing sector since September 2015. New orders fell at a similarly sharp rate to that seen at the end of last year, with new export sales dropping at the fastest rate since August 2015, and output continued to decline. Also, firms cut back on their purchasing activity and lowered their holdings of both purchased and finished items. A lack of pressure on capacity meanwhile led to a further fall in backlogs of work, despite staffing levels falling for the second month in a row. On the price front, average input prices declined again in January, leading firms to cut their selling prices at the steepest pace for nearly three years. Manufacturing PMI in Taiwan is reported by Markit Economics.
