Japan PMI points to resilient economic growth despite waning post-typhoon demand

Composite PMI Output Index at 52.4 in November, close toOctober's six-month highSurvey suggests waning post-typhoon demand. Exports of goodsand services fallSigns that strong cost rises are not translating into firmerconsumer inflation pressures

The Japanese economy continued to enjoy steady growth midwaythrough the closing quarter of 2018, suggesting the economy willrebound after a weather-related decline in the third quarter.However, the latest Nikkei PMI data indicate that the boost frompost-typhoon demand is waning, hinting that growth could slow incoming months. Cost inflation meanwhile remained strong inNovember, but selling price inflation was once again muted.

Resilient growth but risks ahead

The Nikkei Japan Composite PMI™ Output Index came in at52.4 in November, close to October's post-typhoon rebound of 52.5.The latest data brought the average reading so far in the currentquarter to 52.4, up from 51.5 during the third quarter, indicatingfaster growth of business activity and setting the scene forstronger GDP numbers in the final quarter of 2018.

However, there could be downside risks to the outlook, with thesurvey also bringing signs of slower output growth in comingmonths. Furthermore, even though client demand continued to expand,albeit modestly, the PMI data showed that firms' operating capacityremained underutilised, as indicated by a third consecutive monthof lower backlogs of work.

PMI surveys signal Chinese services lead business activity

Caixin Composite PMI Output Index accelerates to 51.9 inNovemberService business activity recovers notablyCombined new export business declines, dragged by lower goodsexport sales amid trade wars

Fears over a sharp slowing in economic growth on the Chinesemainland eased as the latest Caixin service sector PMI reboundedmidway through the fourth quarter. The upturn helped offset thesubdued manufacturing sector, which has stalled amid ongoing tradefrictions.

The survey nonetheless indicates that the underlying rate ofgrowth has cooled again in the fourth quarter, with businessconfidence about the year ahead also deteriorating as trade warworries exacerbated growing concerns over the weakening demandenvironment.

Growth rebounds from two-year low

Faster economic growth was signalled in November after theCaixin China Composite PMI™ Output Index (which covers bothmanufacturing and services) rose from 50.5 in October to 51.9. Therise was the biggest gain (in terms of index points) for over twoyears, though still failed to regain the ground lost in October,which had seen the index fall to a 28-month low.
