US Factory Activity Growth Slows in July: ISM


The Institute for Supply Management’s Manufacturing PMI in the US fell to 56.3 in July of 2017 from 57.8 in June which was the highest since August of 2014. Figures came slightly below market expectations of 56.5 due to a slowdown in new orders, production and employment.

Growth eased for new orders (60.4 from 63.5 in June); production (60.6 from 62.4); employment (55.2 from 57.2); backlogs of orders (55 from 57) and new export orders (57.5). In addition, inflationary pressures increased (62 from 55); inventoires were unchanged (50 from 49) and customers' inventories declined (49 from 50.5). On the other hand, supplier deliveries improved (55.4 from 57). 

Comments from the panel generally reflect expanding business conditions, with new orders, production, employment, backlog and exports all growing in July compared to June, as well as supplier deliveries slowing (improving) and inventories unchanged during the period.
