Australia - Australian Industry Group Manufacturing PMI (September) 54.2 (prior 59.8)

The purchasing managers' index for manufacturing, published by IHS Markit/CIPS, was 55.9 for September, down slightly from August's four-month high of 56.7.

It was the second weakest in recorded history. In trend terms, growth is continuing but looks to have decelerated through the September quarter.

Mr Willox also said that last orders were now underway for component suppliers to the Australian auto manufacturing sector, and the final impact on the overall manufacturing industry won't be known until the end of the year.

Ai chief executive Innes Willox says the recovery in manufacturing activity is continuing, but conditions appear to be moderating. Evidently, there were sufficient resources to enable a timely completion of unfinished business, with backlogs decreasing for the fourth consecutive month.

"Firms felt some respite around inflationary pressures, as input cost inflation slowed to the weakest since December 2016, alleviating some doubts that the recent interest rate cut would intensify inflation". Reflecting higher cost burdens, firms raised their charges again in September. This reflected a combination of rising commodity prices, the exchange rate, and increased supply-chain pressures. Also, Vice Chairman Daniel Yergin sold 43,657 shares of IHS Markit stock in a transaction dated Wednesday, July 5th.

Suppliers' delivery times continued to lengthen, albeit to the least extent in the current eight-month sequence of longer lead times. Conversely, stocks of finished goods rose during the month. Panellists commented on planned expansions and expected improvements in market demand.

Readings above 50 points indicate expansion in activity.

"Overall growth continued to be driven by sharp expansions in both output and new orders, which in turn contributed to another solid rise in employment, boosting hopes of a further fall in the unemployment rate", he said.

Suggesting October will also be a busy month for factories, a sub-index measuring new orders rose to 58.5 from 58.3. Over the third quarter of 2017 as a whole, the PMI showed the highest average since Q1'2015.
