Japan Manufacturing PMI Climbs To 53.6 In November - Nikkei

"Underlying data indicated that the central bank is less likely to adopt an accommodative stance as input cost inflation intensified to the fastest since April", said Dodhia.

The Markit Canada Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' index (PMI), a measure of manufacturing business conditions, edged up to a seasonally adjusted 54.4 last month from 54.3 in October. It was still lower compared to the 56.3 posted a year earlier.

Output and new orders both rose only modestly leading to a fall in employment and a reduction in business confidence.

That's up from 52.8 in October, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

In response to greater production demand, the survey found that firms had raised staffing levels for a second month running in November.

Official figures on British manufacturing, which painted a gloomier view than the PMI surveys for much of this year, have also now started to show improvement.

Factories also stepped up purchasing activity to meet current and future demand, with the rise in buying levels the highest since December previous year.

A broadening of price pressures represented a downside in the latest PMI, with factories facing extra costs from supply chain bottlenecks, overtaking sterling's weakness as the main driver of price increases.

"On its current course, manufacturing production is rising at a quarterly rate approaching 2%, providing a real boost to the pace of broader economic expansion", said Rob Dobson, director at IHS Markit, which compiles the survey.

On the price front, input price inflation quickened to a 7-month high in November amid higher prices of chemicals, steel and petroleum products.

"The PMI suggests the strong growth momentum in the Filipino economy has some way to go".
