The Nikkei Manufacturing PMI in South Korea fell to 49.0 in January of 2017 from 49.4 in December.

Manufacturers scaled back on input buying, offsetting the increase seen in December. Input prices rose at the sharpest rate in nearly six years, leading to an increase in prices charged. On a more positive note, the newly-launched business sentiment index rose the most in seven months.
