ISM Manufacturing PMI Tops Forecasts
The ISM Manufacturing PMI increased to 59.9 in August of 2021 from 59.5 in July, beating forecasts of 58.6. New orders (66.7 vs 64.9 in July), production (60 vs 58.4) and inventories (65.2 vs 48.9) increased and price pressures eased (79.4 vs 85.7, the lowest since December). On the other hand, employment contracted (49 vs 52.9, the lowest since November). "Panelists reported that their companies and suppliers continue to struggle at unprecedented levels to meet increasing demand. All segments of the manufacturing economy are impacted by record-long raw-materials lead times, continued shortages of critical basic materials, rising commodities prices and difficulties in transporting products. However, optimistic panel sentiment remained strong", Timothy Fiore, Chair of the ISM said.

US Factory Growth Slows in July: ISM
The ISM Manufacturing PMI fell to 59.5 in July of 2021, the weakest in 6 months, compared to 60.6 in June and below forecasts of 60.9. The reading pointed to the second consecutive month of slowing factory growth as new orders (64.9 vs 66 in June), production (58.4 vs 60.8) and supplier deliveries (72.5 vs 75.1) increased less while inventories contracted (48.9 vs 51.1). On the other hand, employment rebounded (52.9 vs 49.9) and prices pressures eased (85.7 vs 92.1). “Panelists’ companies and their supply chains continue to struggle to respond to strong demand due to difficulties in hiring and retaining direct labor. Comments indicate slight improvements in labor and supplier deliveries offset by continued problems in the transportation sector. Labor challenges across the entire value chain and transportation inefficiencies are the major obstacles to increasing growth,” says Timothy Fiore, Chair of the ISM.

United States ISM Purchasing Managers Index (PMI)
The Manufacturing ISM Report On Business® is based on data compiled from purchasing and supply executives nationwide. Survey responses reflect the change, if any, in the current month compared to the previous month. For each of the indicators measured (New Orders, Backlog of Orders, New Export Orders, Imports, Production, Supplier Deliveries, Inventories, Customers' Inventories, Employment and Prices), the report shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between the number of responses in the positive economic direction and the negative economic direction, and the diffusion index. A PMI™ reading above 50 percent indicates that the manufacturing economy is generally expanding; below 50 percent indicates that it is generally declining.
