CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS

August 1986
M3-1(86)-8
5r 1, 1986


I(All Figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in August
decreased $2.8 billion or 1.4 percent to $191.8 billion,
offsetting last month's revised increase of 1.4 percent. A
large decline in defense capital goods orders caused most of
the August decline; excluding defense, manufacturers' new
orders were about the same as July.
Shipments of manufactured goods in August declined $0.3
billion or 0.2 percent to $193.0 billion. Shipments have
been virtually unchanged since May.
Manufacturers' unfilled orders in August declined $1.2
billion or 0.3 percent to $364.7 billion; excluding defense
capital goods, the decline was 0.5 percent. Excluding the
defense backlog, unfilled orders were estimated at $215.5
billion and have shown a downward trend since the $236.4
billion in July 1984.
Manufacturers' inventories in August declined $0.5
billion or 0.2 percent to $278.1 billion. The inventory to
shipments ratio in August was 1.44, unchanged since May.
NEW ORDERS. The August decline in new orders was
concentrated in the durable goods sector, which declined
$3.3 billion or 3.1 percent to $102.9 billion.
Transportation equipment was down $2.5 billion or 8.9
percent to $25.8 billion with most of the decrease due to
declines in defense orders for aircraft and parts,
shipbuilding, and tanks.

Both electrical and nonelectrical machinery were down
in August. The electrical category declined $1.0 billion
or 6.1 percent to $15.9 billion with the largest decrease in
defense communication equipment. The nonelectrical category
declined $0.6 billion or 3.3 percent to $16.7 billion.
New orders for primary metals increased $1.2 billion or
12.9 percent to $10.2 billion. The steel industry accounted
for about two-thirds of the increase.


SHIPMENTS. The decline in sQ F ,' *l-'of 0.2
percent resulted from a $1.0 bii I l ,i. t"yer, decline
in durables more than offsetting a $, '''bi ..n or 0.8
percent increase in nondurables. Durable goods industries
showing the largest declines were nonelectrical machinery,
down $0.7 billion or 3.9 percent to $16.4 billion,
transportation equipment, down $0.5 billion or 2.0 percent
to $26.8 billion, and primary metals, down $0.3 billion or
3.0 percent to $9.4 billion. The only major increase was in
electrical machinery, up $0.7 billion or 4.4 percent to
$16.9 billion.
The increase in nondurable shipments of 0.8 percent was
caused mostly by chemicals, up $0.4 billion or 2.3 percent
to $18.0 billion, and tobacco, up $0.3 billion or 19.5
percent to $1.8 billion.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The decline in unfilled orders of 0.3
percent resulted mostly from declines in transportation
equipment and electrical machinery, more than offsetting a
large increase in primary metals. Transportation equipment
declined $0.9 billion or 0.6 percent to $158.7 billion, with
the largest decreases in nondefense aircraft and parts. The
decline in electrical machinery was $1.0 billion or 1.1
percent to $84.1 billion, because of declines in
communication equipment and electronic components. Primary
metals increased $0.9 billion or 4.7 percent to $19.2
billion, with the total increase in the steel industry.
INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable and nondurable goods
each declined 0.2 percent, durables down to $186.6 billion
and nondurables down to $91.6 billion. The industry with
the largest change was the steel industry where inventories
declined $0.3 billion or 4.7 percent to $6.8 billion.
Inventories by stage of fabrication showed little change
from July.

goods for September is scheduled for release on October 23,
