The IHS Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI rose to 53.1 in November of 2018 from 51.1 in October, beating market expectations of 51.5. However, the performance of the manufacturing sector remained comparatively lacklustre, with the latest PMI reading still among the weakest registered over the past two-and-a-half years. Output and new orders strengthened slightly amid new product launches and client stock-building; and employment rebounded from a fall in October. On the other hand, new export orders declined for the second straight month, mainly due to reduced client interest from overseas and ongoing Brexit uncertainties; input price inflation accelerated due to higher commodity prices, ongoing exchange rate effects and shortages for certain raw materials. Finally, business confidence fell to the lowest in 27 months, dragged down by Brexit uncertainty, exchange rate concerns and a slowing economy. Manufacturing PMI in the United Kingdom is reported by Markit Economics.
