The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI fell to a three-month low of 52.8 in January 2019 from 54.2 in the previous month and below market expectations of 53.5. The latest reading was also the second-weakest since July 2016, the first survey month following the EU referendum result. Output growth was the weakest registered during the past two-and-a-half years and new order inflows expanded at a slower pace while inventories of finished goods rose at the third-fastest rate in the survey history. In addition, employment fell for only the second time in the past two-and-a-half years; while Brexit preparations led to the fastest increase in inventory holdings in the 27-year survey history. On the price front, input cost inflation eased to 32-month low and average selling prices also increased at a slower pace. Looking ahead, positive sentiment dipped to a 30-month low amid Brexit uncertainty and signs of a European economic slowdown. Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
