The IHS Markit/BME Germany Manufacturing PMI was revised lower to 44.4 in April 2019 from a preliminary estimate of 44.5 and compared to March's 80-month low of 44.1. Both output and new orders continued to contract at sharp rates, as well as new export sales, whose fall was often linked to a slowdown in the automotive industry. Capacity pressures meanwhile continued to dissipate, resulting in another modest decrease in employment and the most marked improvement in supplier delivery times since May 2009. On the price front, purchase price inflation faced by manufacturers in April was only fractionally higher than March's 32-month low, as higher oil prices and wage pressures were largely offset by a general lack of supplier pricing power and falls in the cost of steel and related products. Accordingly, output price inflation slowed for the fourth month in a row to the weakest since November 2016. Looking ahead, the degree of pessimism was the greatest seen since November 2012. Manufacturing PMI in Germany is reported by Markit Economics.
