Labor shortages remain a key inhibitor in meeting higher demand for goods.” source: Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

Tenth District Factory Growth at 3-Month High
The Kansas City Fed's Manufacturing Production Index rose to 25 in October 2021 from 10 in the previous month, the highest since July. Factory growth in October was driven by increased activity at nondurable goods plants, in particular paper and printing production, chemical manufacturing, and plastics products, while durable goods manufacturing grew more moderately. “Production and employment have continued to increase. However, more firms reported additional price increases and delivery time delays. Most contacts expected supply chain issues to be resolved within the next 6 to 12 months, but 36% of firms expected these issues to persist for more than 12 months”, said Chad Wilkerson, vice president and economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Tenth District Factory Growth Lowest in 14 Months
The Kansas City Fed's Manufacturing Production Index fell to 10 in September 2021 from 22 in the previous month, the lowest since July 2020. Factory growth continued to be driven by a faster increase in durable goods, in particular primary metals, computer and electronic products, and transportation equipment, while nondurable goods manufacturing grew more modestly. “The pace of regional factory activity growth eased slightly but remained positive,” said Wilkerson. “Many firms continued to report rapid increases in input prices, difficulties hiring workers, and supply chain delays. However, production remains considerably higher than a year ago, with the most positive expectations for production in almost 20 years.”
