Taiwan Manufacturing PMI Continues To Slide - Nikkei

The manufacturing sector in Taiwan continued to contract in January, and at a faster pace, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 47.5.

That's down from 47.7 in December, and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, there were sharper falls in output and new business at the start of 2019.

Destocking activity persisted, while input costs and output charges both contracted at faster rates.
