South Korea Manufacturing PMI  2011-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Nikkei Manufacturing PMI in South Korea stood at 49.4 in December of 2016 from 48.0 in November. It was the fifth straight month of contraction but the slowest in the current sequence of decline. Output and new orders contracted marginally and employment fell at the fastest rate in over two years while new export orders expanded for the first time in five months. Buying activity also went up at the sharpest rate since February 2015. Meantime, as greater raw material costs resulting from the weakness of the South Korean won led to a marked rise in input price, charges rose at the fastest rate in 68 months. On the price front, cost burdens rose the most since May 2011, leading to an increase in charges for the first time in over three years. Manufacturing PMI in South Korea averaged 49.37 from 2011 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 52.60 in April of 2013 and a record low of 45.70 in September of 2012. Manufacturing PMI in South Korea is reported by Markit Economics.
