  • India's December manufacturing sector sees fastest pace of growth in five years

While growth in new business, output, export orders and employment slowed in December, the PMI stayed above its average for 2017 as a whole.

Sub-indices for production and new orders came in at 54 and 53.4, respectively, down from 54.3 and 53.6 last month, but well above the boom-bust line of 50. Furthermore, the rate of expansion quickened to the strongest since December 2012.

"Interestingly, the wages component dipped in December, but at 60.2 it does point to the prospect of some pick-up in wages growth", Mr Oliver said.

"Manufacturers will be looking to the new year for the progress on the National Energy Guarantee and other measures to put downward pressure on business costs", Mr Willox said.

China's manufacturing sector continued to expand in December, pointing to economic resilience in the country's factory sector.

China's slowdown means that for the rest of Asia, the pace of rate increases is unlikely to match that of the U.S. Federal Reserve, which is seen hiking 2-3 times in 2018.

Finally, the Future Output Index signalled the strongest level of confidence in three months, with more than one-in-five survey participants forecasting higher production.

German factories shifted into overdrive in December as strong foreign demand propelled growth in activity to a record high and capacity constraints led to the biggest delivery delays in more than 20 years, a survey showed on Tuesday.

Penn State jumps out to big lead, hangs on to beat Washington
Barkley is maybe the most complete running back in the nation with 1,134 yards and a league-high 16 rushing TDs. Washington will certainly rely on the run game , but they are certainly not one-dimensional.

"(British manufacturing) broadly maintained its solid boost to broader economic expansion in the fourth quarter", said Rob Dobson, director at PMI compiler IHS Markit.

However, the sector continues to face some turbulence as delayed customer payments contributed to greater volumes of outstanding work.

Costs of raw materials such as oil and steel rose while prices of materials from Chinese suppliers increased, leading to a sharp rise in input costs in December.

"Challenges remain as the economy adjusts to recent shocks, but the overall upturn was robust compared to the trend observed for the survey history. This outlook was shared by the manufacturing community as sentiment picked-up to the strongest in three months amid expected improvements in market conditions over the next 12 months".
