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

The Nikkei Japan Flash Manufacturing PMI fell to 52.6 in March of 2017 from 53.3 in February and missing market consensus of 53.5. It was the lowest reading since December 2016, due to a slowdown in output, new orders and new export orders while business confidence softened to four-month low. At the same time, job creation remained solid. Input prices continued to rise but output prices declined marginally. “Although signalling a slower rate of expansion during March, the latest PMI data again point to a Japanese manufacturing economy expanding at a decent clip,” Amy Brownbill, economist at IHS Markit, said. Manufacturing PMI in Japan averaged 49.76 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. Manufacturing PMI in Japan is reported by Markit Economics.
