Manufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders


FEBRUARY 1984

M3-1(84)-2
For Wire Transmission 10:00 A.M. E.S.T. Friday, March 30, 1984

seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactirred in February
increased $1.3 billion or 0.7 percent from January to
$190.9 billion. The durable and nondurable goods
sectors were up 0.9 percent and 0.4 percent
respectively. The change in new orders for durable
goods was originally estimated at a 1.2 percent
decline; the revision was caused by the addition of
company data not available in time for the advance
report. Shipments of manufactured goods in February
increased $1.1 billion or 0.6 percent to $184.9 billion
following a 1.6 percent decline in January. Prior to
that, manufacturers' shipments generally showed gains
between the recession low in October 1982 of $154.2
billion and December 1983 of $186.7 billion.

The backlog of orders held by manufacturers at the
end of February was estimated at $346.2 billion, up
$6.1 billion or 1.8 percent from January. Significant
increases in unfilled orders have occurred since
September when the level was $323.0 billion, an average
gain of $4.6 billion per month.

The book value of manufacturers' inventories in
February increased to $263.8 billion, up $3.2 billion
or 1.2 percent from January. The inventory to
shipments ratio at the end of February was 1.43, the
second consecutive monthly increase. Following the
recession the ratio had dropped from 1.71 in December
1982 to 1.40 in December 1983.

NEW ORDERS. The February increase in new orders of 0.7
percent resulted from a mixed pattern of increases and
decreases in the major industry categories. Within the
durable goods sector, the largest increase was in the
transportation equipment industry, where new orders
increased $1.4 billion or 5.6 percent to $27.1 billion.
Increases in new orders for commercial aircraft and
parts and for defense shipbuilding were partially
offset by declines in the other transportation
equipment categories. New orders were also up for
electrical machinery, where an increase of $0.6 billion
or 4.0 percent to $15.9 billion was recorded. The
largest decline in new orders in the durable goods
sector was in the primary metals category which
decreased $1.3 billion or 10.6 percent to $11.2
billion, following a 17.8 percent increase last month.
Although orders for primary metals have been
fluctuating for the last four months they have been
showing a strong upward trend since October 1982 when
they reached a low of $7.1 billion.


New orders for the capital goods industries as a
group were up $2.5 billion or 7.8 percent to $34.4
billion. New orders for nondefense capital goods were
up $1.6 billion or 6.2 percent to $26.9 billion, while
new orders for defense capital goods increased $0.9
billion or 13.9 percent to $7.5 billion.

SHIPMENTS. About two thirds of the $1.1 billion
increase in shipments of manufactured goods in February
was caused by an $0.8 billion or 0.9 percent increase
in the durable goods sector where most of the
industries showed small gains. The increase in
shipments in the nondurable goods sector of $0.3
billion or 0.3 percent resulted mostly from increases
in the tobacco and petroleum product industries. The
February increases offset most of the declines reported
in these two industries last month.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The increase in unfilled orders at
the end of February of $6.1 billion or 1.8 percent
reflected increases in the transportation equipment
industry of $2.7 billion or 2.0 percent to $137.5
billion, in electrical machinery of $1.7 billion or 2.4
percent to $73.0 billion, in nonelectrical machinery of
$0.6 billion or 1.1 percent to $59.8 billion, and in
primary metals of $0.5 billion or 1.6 percent to $28.7
billion. Unfilled orders for capital goods went up
$4.5 billion or 1.9 percent to $242.4 billion, with
both the defense and nondefense categories increasing.

INVENTORIES. The inventory increase in February
reflected widespread increases in virtually all major
industries. By stage of fabrication all components
increased with finished goods showing the first
increase since last August. The February increase in
finished goods of 1.4 percent resulted from an increase
in the durable goods sector of 1.1 percent and the
nondurable goods sector of 1.8 percent. Work in
process inventories increased 1.3 percent in February
with most of the gain coming in the durable goods
category. Materials and supplies inventories increased
in both the durable and nondurable. goods sectors about
1.0 percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for March is scheduled for release on April 24,
1984 at 8:30 A.M. and the full report on May 1, 1984 at
10:00 A.M.
