The S&P Global Thailand Manufacturing PMI rose to a fresh record high of 55.7 in September 2022 from 53.7 in August, posting the ninth straight month of growth in factory activity with record growth rates in both output and new orders driving the upturn, amid a record pace of buying levels and a renewed uptick in new exports. September data signaled a fifth straight round of job shedding while backlogs of work fell for the ninth month running and at the second-fastest pace on record. Lead times continued to lengthen, though the extent to which they increased was the least in four months. On inflation, cost pressures stayed severe but eased from August's peaks. Rising prices for gas and freight were linked to input cost inflation. Firms said that higher selling prices were reflective of the increasing production costs. Lastly, sentiment stayed optimistic, with the degree of confidence the second-strongest on record amid hopes for economic improvements and expansion plans. source: Markit Economics
