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.

Latest Updates

The ISM Manufacturing PMI in the US fell to 47.2 in December of 2019 from 48.1 in November, well below market expectations of 49. The reading pointed to the fifth straight month of declining manufacturing activity, and the worst since June of 2009. New orders, production, employment and new export orders also shrank at faster paces and price pressures increased.
