Czech Republic: PMI falls to six-month low in June

July 1, 2014

The manufacturing PMI Index, elaborated by HSBC in collaboration with Markit, fell to 54.7 in June. The result came in below the 57.3 recorded in May and marked the lowest level in six months. Despite the fall, the manufacturing PMI—the result of a survey of over 250 manufacturing firms based in the Czech Republic—has hovered above the 50 threshold since May 2013.

According to HSBC, this month’s result showed that growth in the manufacturing sector, “continued to experience improving business conditions in June.” However, “output, new orders, exports, purchasing and employment all continued to grow solidly, albeit at weaker rates than in May.” HSBC concluded that, “the overall improvement in business conditions was the weakest signaled during the first half of 2014.”

FocusEconomics participants see fixed investment increasing 2.5% in 2014, which is up 0.3 percentage points from last month’s projection. For 2015, panelists expect fixed investment to expand 3.3%.
