South Korea Manufacturing PMI Falls To 41.6 - IHS Marketing

05/03/2020 - 20:45:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The South Korea manufacturing sector continued to contract in April, and at a faster rate because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the latest survey from IHS Marketing revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 41.6.

That's down from 44.2 in March and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, production fell at its fastest rate since January 2009, while export demand plummeted amid lockdowns in key foreign markets.

Reduces operating rates at suppliers led to further input shortages.
