United Kingdom manufacturing beats forecasts with strong growth in August

Growth in Greek manufacturing activity accelerated in August for the third consecutive month as rising demand at home and overseas led firms to add jobs and increase production, a survey showed.

The IHS Markit/CIPS purchasing managers' index for the United Kingdom manufacturing sector jumped to 56.9, a four-month high, in August from an upwardly-revised 55.3 in July, easily exceeding the 55.0 consensus forecast in a poll of economists.

"Companies linked gains in new export work to increased business from mainland Europe, the USA, China and Australia".

"In addition, manufacturers' optimism regarding future production growth only edged up in August to its five-year average, suggesting that they will invest only cautiously in extra capacity".

It came as household spending slumped to its lowest level in almost three years following a slowdown in new vehicle sales and persistent pressure from higher inflation. Consequently, output prices rose at a solid pace that was the fastest in 2017 to date.
