CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS


manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders


JANUARY 1984

M3-1(84)-1
For Wire Transmission 10:00 A.M. E.S.T. Friday, March 2, 1984


(All figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in January
increased $2.2 billion or 1.2 percent from December to
$190.7 billion. New orders in the durable goods sector
were up $2.7 billion or 2.7 percent, more than
offsetting the $0.5 billion or 0.5 percent decline in
the nondurable goods sector. New orders for durable
goods were originally reported up 1.1 percent.
Shipments of manufactured goods in January declined
$1.2 billion or 0.6 percent to $185.5 billion,
reflecting declines in both the durable and nondurable
goods sectors.

The level of unfilled orders held by manufacturers
at the end of January was $339.5 billion, up $5.2
billion or 1.6 percent from December. Increases of
more than 1 percent were widespread throughout the
industries. The book value of manufacturers'
inventories at the end of January was $260.9 billion,
showing virtually no change from December. Inventories
have remained around the $260 billion level since the
end of 1982 when they were estimated at $265 billion.
During that time the inventory to shipments ratio
dropped from 1.71 in December 1982 to 1.40 in December
1983, but rose slightly in January to 1.41.

NEW ORDERS. The increase in manufacturers' new orders
in January resulted mostly from a large increase in the
primary metals industry. Steel manufacturers showed an
order increase of $2.1 billion or 57 percent to $5.8
billion, following a 20 percent decline in December.
Smaller increases were reported in the fabricated
metals, nonelectrical machinery and transportation
equipment industries.

New orders for capital goods in January declined
$1.7 billion or 5.1 percent to $32.0 billion. Orders
for defense capital goods declined $2.3 billion or 26
percent to $6.6 billion following two months in which
new orders were valued between $8 and $9 billion. New
orders for nondefense capital goods increased $0.6
billion or 2.3 percent to $25.4 billion. New orders
for nondefense capital goods have averaged about $25
billion per month since last September.

SHIPMENTS. The decline in shipments of manufactured
goods in January in the durable goods sector of $0.4
billion or 0.4 percent to $95.8 billion resulted from
offsetting movements in specific industries. Shipments
of primary metals declined $0.9 billion or 7.6 percent
to $10.7 billion, the first decrease in the series in
nearly a year. Shipments of nonelectrical machinery


declined $0.7 billion or 4.0 percent to $16.2 billion.
Shipments of transportation equipment were up $0.9
billion or 4.1 percent to $24.2 billion, with the motor
vehicles and parts industry increasing $1.8 billion or
11.6 percent to $17.0 billion. Shipments by this
industry have gone up over 30 percent during the last 3
months. Aircraft and shipbuilding both showed declines
in January.

The decline in shipments of nondurable goods in
January resulted mostly from large decreases in the
petroleum product and tobacco industries. Shipments of
petroleum products dropped $1.3 billion or 8.1 percent
to $15.0 billion. The value of petroleum product
shipments peaked in February 1981 at $19.0 billion
before declining to a low last February of $14.0
billion. During the rest of 1983 shipments averaged
about $16 billion per month. Shipments in the tobacco
industry declined $0.8 billion or 37 percent to $1.3
billion in January following a 23 percent increase last
month.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The increase in unfilled orders at
the end of January of $5.2 billion reflected increases
in the primary metals industry of $2.0 billion, the
transportation industry of $1.6 billion, the electrical
machinery industry of $0.8 billion and the
nonelectrical machinery industry of $0.6 billion.
Unfilled orders for the capital goods industries as a
group increased $1.9 billion or 0.8 percent to $237.5
billion, with the defense and nondefense categories
each increasing 0.8 percent.

INVENTORIES. The value of manufacturers' inventories
has remained virtually unchanged in nearly a year. A
sustained reduction in inventories occurred between
November 1981 and March 1983 declining from $284.3
billion to $257.3 billion. Since then the value has
averaged about $260 billion. Finished goods inventories
which in November 1981 were estimated at $90 billion
have since declined to the January 1984 level of $80.3
billion. Raw material inventories declined from $96.1
billion in November 1981 to a low last March of $84.8
billion; since then raw materials inventories have
increased to $89.3 billion.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for February is scheduled for release on March
22, 1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on March 30,
1984 at 10:00 A.M.

Preliminary. rRevised.

Shipments and new orders are the totals for the period and are adjusted for trading-day and calendar-month variations; unfilled orders and inventories
areas of the end of the period and are not adjusted for trading-day or calendar-month variations.
The supplementary series are regroupings of the separate industry categories: Household durable goods industries includes household furniture; kitchen
articles and pottery; cutlery, hand tools, and hardware; household appliances, radio and TV, ophthalmic goods, watches, and clocks; and miscellaneous per-
sonal goods.
Nondefense capital goods include machinery, except electrical (excluding farm machinery and equipment and machine shops); electrical machinery (excluding
household appliances, radio and TV, and electronic components); railroad equipment; and the nondefense portions of ordnance; communication equipment; air-
craft and aircraft parts; and shipbuilding, converting and repairing.
Defense capital goods include ordnance, communication equipment, aircraft and aircraft parts, and shipbuilding converting and repairing. The defense
data are comparable to those published annually in the MA-175, Shipments to Federal Government Agencies.
