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

The Nikkei Japan Final Manufacturing PMI rose to 52.4 in December of 2016, higher than a preliminary figure of 51.9 and from a final 51.3 in November. It was the highest reading since December 2015, as output and new orders both expanded to a one-year high while new export orders rose for the fourth straight month. Also, employment grew at a fastest pace in 32 months and buying activity rose at the quickest rate in nearly one year. However, cost inflationary pressures continued to build, with input prices increasing at the fastest rate since July 2015. On the price front, reports of greater raw material prices, particularly for oil-and metal-related items, stemming from the weakness of the yen led to a sharper increase in input costs. Meanwhile, charges broadly stabilised. Manufacturing PMI in Japan averaged 49.68 from 2008 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 56.20 in January of 2014 and a record low of 29.60 in February of 2009. Manufacturing PMI in Japan is reported by Markit Economics.
