Singapore: Manufacturing PMI ticks up in August

September 12, 2018

The manufacturing PMI produced by the Singapore Institute of Purchasing and Materials Management (SIPMM) rose from 52.3 in July to 52.6 in August, putting a stop to four consecutive monthly declines. The index moved further above the crucial 50-point mark that separates expansion from contraction in Singapore’s manufacturing sector and logged a 24th consecutive month of expansion. August’s result reflected faster growth in new orders, new exports, employment and factory output.

The electronics PMI also improved, from 51.6 in July to 52.0 in August. The increase was driven by faster growth in new orders, new exports, employment and factory output.
