The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI rose to 55.1 in March 2019 from an upwardly revised 52.1 in the previous month, defying market consensus of 51.0. The latest reading pointed to the strongest pace of expansion in the manufacturing sector since February 2018 as companies stepped up production to build-up inventories of both purchases and finished products in advance of Brexit, leading to improved inflows of new work and employment growth. On the price front, average purchase prices increased further on raw material shortages, inflationary pressures and higher energy costs; while output charge inflation eased to a 32-month low. Looking ahead, business sentiment remained subdued amid persistent Brexit concerns. Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
