Thailand Manufacturing PMI Second Lowest on Record
The IHS Markit Thailand Manufacturing PMI rose to 41.6 in May 2020 from a record low of 36.8 in a month earlier. However, the latest reading was the second-lowest since the survey started 4-1/2 years ago, amid measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Output and new orders declined further but slightly softer, linked to a record fall in exports and widespread business closures. While the rate of job shedding slowed from April's record, it was the second-fastest in the series history. Firms also cut back on purchasing activity in the face of falling sales and reduced operational requirements. On the inflation front, price levels were broadly stable, with little change to both input costs and selling prices when compared to the previous month. Finally, business expectations remained deep inside the negative territory, amid concerns over the longer-term impact of the pandemic.

Thailand Manufacturing PMI Hits Record Low
The IHS Markit Thailand Manufacturing PMI dropped to 46.7 in March 2020 from 49.5 in a month earlier. This was the weakest reading on record, as new orders fell at the fastest rate since the survey began over four years ago, reflecting also a record decline in exports. Meantime, output shrank at a rate not seen since the work suspensions in November 2016 due to the Thai King's passing. Also, employment fell at a survey-record rate. In terms of cost, input prices rose for the first time in four months, while factory gate prices fell further. Supply chains, meanwhile, improved as reduced demand for inputs offset the effects of some supply shortages, contributing to a shortening of the time taken to deliver materials to factories. Lastly, sentiment turned negative for the first time since mid-2018, amid the adverse impact of COVID-19 containment measures on the economy and the uncertainty over the duration of these measures.

The IHS Markit Thailand Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 450 manufacturing companies. The Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.
