Financial News: Thailand's Factory Activity Contracts In March

Thailand's Factory Activity Contracts In March

04/02/2018 - 03:42:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Thailand's manufacturing sector contracted in March on renewed falls in output and new orders, data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The Nikkei manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index fell to 49.1 in March from 50.9 in February, marking the first deterioration in the health of the sector for five months.

A score below 50 indicates contraction. The latest score was the lowest since November 2016.

Data showed that there were renewed signs of softer client demand. Consistent with lower domestic demand and slower export growth, Thai manufacturers cut back on production.

Consequently, factory employment decreased at the steepest rate for six months.

Business confidence was also affected by the downturn, with firms expressing pessimism about the outlook in the year ahead for the first time since the survey started on December 2015.
