Poland’s Manufacturing PMI Hits Low in Jan 2024
In January 2024, Poland’s Manufacturing PMI dropped slightly to 47.1 from 47.4 in December, going against expectations of a rise to 48.2. This marked the most significant decline in manufacturing since October 2023 and continued a 21-month downward trend. Both new orders and production saw substantial falls. New orders decreased for the 23rd consecutive month due to low demand, notably from Germany, and production experienced its sharpest drop in three months. As a result, companies slightly reduced their staff numbers and cut back on purchasing.
Supplier delivery times were the longest since August 2022, mainly because of the crisis in the Red Sea. Despite these delays, there was no increase in inflation pressures on manufacturers, with both input and output prices being lowered. On the brighter side, manufacturers’ outlook for the next 12 months reached its most optimistic level before Russia’s invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
