Italy Factory Activity Shrinks for 14th Month
The IHS Markit Italy Manufacturing PMI dropped to 47.6 in November 2019 from 47.7 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the fourteenth month of contraction in factory activity and at the sharpest pace since March. Output, new orders and export orders declined much faster, mainly due to a slowing economy as well as softer demand from automotive and metal customers. As a result, employment decreased for the sixth month running and purchasing activity also declined, although the rate of contraction was the weakest since May. On the price front, input costs decreased amid reports of lower raw material prices and output prices also fell, though the rate was modest. Looking ahead, business confidence was the lowest since December 2012, amid concerns over weaker international demand.
