The IHS Markit Brazil Manufacturing PMI fell to 50.2 in May 2019 from 51.5 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the weakest expansion in factory activity since June last year, as output growth slowed and new orders dropped marginally driven by both foreign and domestic markets. Also, employment declined for the first time in 2019 mostly due to cost consciousness, economic uncertainty and softer demand. On the price front, input cost inflation rose to a seven-month high boosted by the currency weakness and output prices advanced to the fastest pace since October last year. Looking ahead, business sentiment softened to the lowest in over one-and-a-half years, amid trade concerns and economic uncertainty. Manufacturing PMI in Brazil is reported by Markit Economics.
