The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to 49.4 in May 2019 from 53.1 in the previous month and well below market expectations of 52. The latest reading pointed to the first month of contraction in the manufacturing sector since July 2016 as new orders fell the most in nearly three years, with new export business declining at the quickest pace in over four-and-a-half years due to lower demand from Asia and Europe.

On the price front, output charges inflation rose to a three-month high in May, while purchase price inflation edged lower. Looking ahead, manufacturers remained optimistic in May due to reduced uncertainty following Brexit, growth plans recoveries in domestic and overseas demand, new product launches and using new technologies.
