The Malaysian manufacturing sector reported a further increase in growth momentum at the end of 2021, as operating conditions improved at the quickest rate since April.

Despite the additional pressure on production lines, manufacturers scaled down workforces in December. The headline IHS Markit Malaysia Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) — a composite single-figure indicator of manufacturing performance — rose from 52.3 in November to 52.8 in December, indicating a stronger improvement in the health of the sector. IHS Markit said that as a result, the average performance over the final quarter was the strongest quarterly performance since the survey began in 2012.
