US PMI signals weakest manufacturing expansion for 18 months

Manufacturing PMI at 18-month low in February as output and neworders growth slow sharplyJob gains moderate amid gloomier prospectsSupply constraints and price pressure ease

IHS Markit PMI™ survey data signalled a downward lurch inkey manufacturing indicators in February. Growth of production andincoming factory orders slowed sharply to paint the weakest pictureof output and demand for one and a half years, backlogs of workbarely rose and job creation slowed. Price pressures meanwhilemoderated amid the weakened demand environment. Business optimismabout the year ahead also deteriorated, adding to the downbeatpicture.

Stalling output and order books

The seasonally adjusted IHS Markit Manufacturing PMI™ hitan 18-month low in February, down to 53.0 in February from 54.9 inJanuary. Although still well above the 50 'no change' level, thePMI is a composite index of various survey indicators, andcomparisons of these survey sub-indices with official data paints agloomier picture.

Of particular note, the survey's output and new orders indicessuggest that factory production and orders growth rates are closeto stalling mid-way through the first quarter, albeit in partrepresenting some pay-back after a strong January.

The output index exhibits an 89% correlation with the FederalReserve's measure of manufacturing production on athree-month-on-three-month's basis (monthly changes in the officialdata are extremely volatile). As such the data can be used toaccurately model the official data and predict forthcoming Fedreleases. A regression analysis using the PMI's output index as anexplanatory variable of the Fed's output gauge yields an adjustedr-square of 0.79, and indicates that the officialthree-month-on-three-month output growth rate will fall tonear-stagnation. A similar analysis also shows a near-stalling ofofficial factory orders and durable goods orders growth.

February 2019 Manufacturing ISM Report On Business

PMI® at 54.2%New Orders, Production, and Employment GrowingSupplier Deliveries Slowing at Slower Rate; Backlog GrowingRaw Materials Inventories Growing; Customers’ Inventories Too LowPrices Decreasing; Exports and Imports Growing

(Tempe, Arizona) — Economic activity in the manufacturing sector expanded in February, and the overall economy grew for the 118th consecutive month, say the nation’s supply executives in the latest Manufacturing ISM® Report On Business®.

The report was issued today by Timothy R. Fiore, CPSM, C.P.M., Chair of the Institute for Supply Management® (ISM®) Manufacturing Business Survey Committee: “The February PMI® registered 54.2 percent, an decrease of 2.4 percentage points from the January reading of 56.6 percent. The New Orders Index registered 55.5 percent, a decrease of 2.7 percentage points from the January reading of 58.2 percent. The Production Index registered 54.8 percent, 5.7-percentage point decrease compared to the January reading of 60.5 percent. The Employment Index registered 52.3 percent, a decrease of 3.2 percentage points from the January reading of 55.5 percent. The Supplier Deliveries Index registered 54.9 percent, a 1.3 percentage point decrease from the January reading of 56.2 percent. The Inventories Index registered 53.4 percent, an increase of 0.6 percentage point from the January reading of 52.8 percent. The Prices Index registered 49.4 percent, a 0.2-percentage point decrease from the January reading of 49.6 percent, indicating lower raw materials prices for the second straight month after nearly three years of increases.

“Comments from the panel reflect continued expanding business strength, supported by notable demand and output, although both were softer than the prior month. Demand expansion continued, with the New Orders Index reaching the mid-50s, the Customers’ Inventories Index scoring lower and remaining too low, and the Backlog of Orders returning to a low-50s expansion level. Consumption (production and employment) continued to expand but fell a combined 8.9 points from the previous month’s levels. Inputs — expressed as supplier deliveries, inventories and imports — stabilized at a mid-50s level and had a slight negative impact on the PMI®. Inputs continue to reflect an easing business environment, confirmed by Prices Index contraction.

“Exports continue to expand, at slightly stronger rates compared to January. The manufacturing sector continues to expand, but inputs and prices indicate easing of supply chain constraints,” says Fiore.

Of the 18 manufacturing industries, 16 reported growth in February, in the following order: Printing & Related Support Activities; Textile Mills; Computer & Electronic Products; Electrical Equipment, Appliances & Components; Fabricated Metal Products; Paper Products; Wood Products; Primary Metals; Chemical Products; Food, Beverage & Tobacco Products; Miscellaneous Manufacturing; Petroleum & Coal Products; Transportation Equipment; Machinery; Furniture & Related Products; and Plastics & Rubber Products. The only industry reporting contraction in February is Nonmetallic Mineral Products.
