The Nikkei Thailand Manufacturing PMI rose to 51.0 in April 2019 from 50.3 in a month earlier. This was the highest PMI reading since May last year, as new orders rose at the fastest rate since the survey started nearly three-and-a-half years ago, and output advanced the most since December 2018. Also, buying level grew for the second month in a row, which helped to contribute to a further accumulation in input inventories. Meanwhile, employment remained largely stagnant, while the level of unfinished works continued to decline, though at a marginal pace. On the price front, input cost rose again but was modest overall, with higher prices recorded for steel, gas and agricultural products. Subsequently, firms raised output charges in response to increased cost burdens. Looking ahead, sentiment rose to its highest in over three years, amid hopes of greater political certainty, an improved economic environment and higher sales projections.
