China's industrial revenue surge speeds down for the fifth month

In September, the revenue surge of Chinese industrial companies speeded down for the fifth month in a row because sales of raw materials as well as manufactured products further shrank, thus indicating cooling domestic demand in the world's number two economy.

The deceleration turned out to be in line with the previous week’s data, which revealed that September's factory output ascended at the weakest tempo since February 2016.

Decelerating corporate revenue will have jobs pressured, affecting household consumption and also hurting the Asian country’s overall surge.

In September, industrial revenue headed north by 4.1% from 2017 hitting 545.5 billion Yuan, as the National Statistics Bureau informed on Saturday. It appeared to be less than half of August’s pace, and also the slowest tempo since March.

September’s earnings were mostly pressured by a greater deceleration in sales and production, slipping price surge and also a high statistical base in 2017.

An escalating trade conflict with America has also contributed to the pressure on total output, and also threatens to chill business investments along with earnings surge in the months ahead.

The previous week’s data disclosed that in the third quarter the Chinese economy rallied at the weakest tempo since the global financial downtime because manufacturing output speeded down.

In addition to this, the manufacturing sector has also been affected by a reduction in sources of credit against the backdrop of the Chinese government’s multi-year clampdown on corporate debt as well as risky lending practices.

While the Chinese government is taking measures to relieve pressure on businesses with liquidity issues, a lot of Chinese companies still face difficulty in getting funding. Besides this, interest rates on loans have also rallied because of the reduced supply of credit.

Moreover, a decelerating property market, which appears to be an engine of economic surge, has also affected demand for construction-related services and products, curbing industrial revenue.
