The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI fell to 47.5 in June 2019 from 48.3 in the prior month, marking the deepest contraction in factory activity since November 2014. Both output and new orders declined, amid subdued demand from both domestic and external markets, linked to the autos industry. In particular, the decrease in export orders was the sharpest since October 2012. Subsequently, firms cut again their purchasing activity which led to the fastest improvement in delivery times since August 2012. Meantime, the rate of job creation softened. On the price front, input prices fell for the first time in 34 months, amid lower prices of metals and chemicals; but output charges were raised in order to bolster margins. Looking ahead, firms were broadly neutral about the outlook, as worries over the recent economic downturn, especially in the automotive sector, were in part offset by hopes for growth related to new product launches and the planned expansion into new markets. Manufacturing PMI in Austria is reported by Markit Economics.
