Manufacturing & The Economy

U.S. Manufacturing Shows Improvement in August

Manufacturers signaled a solid improvement in operating conditions midway through the third quarter, as highlighted by the IHS Markit Flash U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index posting at 53.6 in August, up from 50.9 in July. The overall rate of improvement was the fastest since January 2019.

The upturn was driven by quicker expansions in output and new orders. Many goods producers stated that the resumption of business operations and the reopening of clients had helped to boost sales, with some also noting larger orders being placed by customers. Firms also recorded the first rise in foreign client demand since December 2019.
