Japan Manufacturing PMI  2008-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The Nikkei Japan Flash Manufacturing PMI rose to 52.8 in April of 2017 from a final 52.4 in March. It was the eighth straight month of expansion in manufacturing activity, driven by faster rises in output, new export orders and employment while business confidence strengthened and new orders went up further. Also, buying quantity and backlogs of work rose at faster rates. Meanwhile, input cost and output charges increased more than in a month earlier. "April’s PMI data signalled continued healthy growth of Japan’s manufacturing sector, and the latest results were again consistent with production rising at a quarterly rate of around 2 percent," said Paul Smith, senior economist at IHS Markit. Manufacturing PMI in Japan averaged 49.79 from 2008 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 56.20 in January of 2014 and a record low of 29.60 in February of 2009.
