T he ISM Production PMI for the United States was 55.4 in April 2022, decreasing for the 2nd month in a row. This compares to 57.1 ISM Production PMI in March and market projection of 57.6. It marked the most affordable reading because July 2020, as a downturn was seen in production (53.6 versus 54.5 in March), brand-new orders (53.5 versus 53.8), and work (50.9 versus 56.3).
On the other hand, cost pressures compromised (84.6 versus 87.1) while the stockpile of orders reduced (56 versus 60). “The U.S. production sector stays in a demand-driven, supply chain-constrained environment. In April, development slowed in fixing labor scarcity issues at all tiers of the supply chain,” Timothy Fiore, Chair of the ISM Production Service Study Committee, stated, per tradingeconomics.com. Out of the 18 production markets, 17 reported development in April.
