SManufacturers' Shipments,

Inventories, and Orders

APRIL 1986
U.S. Department of Commerce M3-1(86)-4
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS For Wire Transmission 10:00a.m. E.D.T. Monday, June 2, 1986

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


SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in April showed
little change from March, up $0.2 billion or 0.1 percent to
$193.2 billion. New orders reached a high in December of
$201.2 billion, were flat in January, and declined 1.3
percent and 2.8 percent in February and March respectively.

Shipments of manufactured goods increased $3.9 billion
or 2.0 percent to $194.9 billion, following 4 months of
declines. Shipments exceeded new orders in April resulting
in a decline in unfilled orders of $1.7 billion or 0.5
percent to $368.7 billion, the first since a 0.9 percent
decline in November 1985.
The book value of manufacturers' inventories showed a
slight decline in April of $0.4 billion or 0.1 percent to
$279.2 billion. Inventories have declined 11 of the last 13
months since reaching a high of $286.2 billion in March
1985. The inventory to shipments ratio in April was 1.43,
down from 1.46 in March.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for the durable goods sector in
total were down $0.2 billion or 0.2 percent to $104.5
billion, with large offsetting movements in the major
industries. The largest increases were in fabricated
metals, up $1.2 billion or 9.3 percent to $14.4 billion, and
nonelectrical machinery, up $0.6 billion or 3.9 percent to
$16.7 billion. No particular industry dominated either
increase. The largest declines were in electrical
machinery, down $1.9 billion or 11.0 percent to $15.2
billion. About two-thirds of the decline in electrical
machinery was in communication equipment; within
transportation equipment, a $2.0 billion decline in
shipbuilding was partially offset by a $1.6 billion increase
in motor vehicles and parts.

New orders for nondurable goods increased $0.4 billion
or 0.4 percent to $88.7 billion. A large increase in the
chemical industry of $1.1 billion to $18.2 billion was
partially offset by declines in several industries. For
most of the nondurable goods industries new orders are equal
to shipments for the mont.b--- --.


SHIPMENTS. Shipments in the durable goods sector were
up in April $3.4 billion or 3.3 percent to $106.1 billion.
The largest increase was in transportation equipment, where
motor vehicles and parts increased $2.0 billion or 12.2
percent to $18.1 billion, offsetting a 12.7 percent decline
in March. Most of the other industries showed increases
except electrical machinery, which declined $0.8 billion or
5.0 percent to $15.4 billion.
Shipments of nondurable goods increased $0.5 billion or
0.5 percent to $88.8 billion, with the specific industries
showing a mixed pattern of increases and decreases. The
largest increase was in chemicals, up $1.1 billion or 6.6
percent to $18.2 billion. The largest declines were in
tobacco and petroleum products, each down $0.6 billion;
petroleum products shipments have declined in value from a
recent high in November 1985 of $17.0 billion to $12.2
billion in April.

UNFILLED ORDERS. The decline in unfilled orders of $1.7
billion was concentrated in the durable goods sector.
Unfilled orders for nonelectrical machinery declined $1.1
billion or 2.0 percent to $57.2 billion. Over 80 percent of
the decline was in office and computing equipment,
continuing its downward trend. Most of the other major
industries were also down, except transportation equipment
which was up slightly, $0.4 billion or 0.2 percent to $160.9
billion.

INVENTORIES. Inventories'of durable goods manufacturers in
April were down $0.5 billion or 0.3 percent to $187.8
billion. The largest declines were in nonelectrial
machinery and primary metals; the largest increases were in
transportation equipment and electrical machinery.
Inventories of nondurable goods were up $0.2 billion or 0.2
percent to $91.4 billion; an increase in food products of
$0.4 billion or 1.9 percent was partially offset by declines
in petroleum and rubber and plastics products.

By stage of fabrication, materials and supplies were up
0.5 percent, work in process down 0.6 percent, and finished
goods down 0.2 percent. The materials and supplies increase
was mostly in the food products industry.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for May is scheduled for release on June 24, 1986 at
8:30 a.m. and the full report on July 2, 1986 at 10:00 a.m.

PPreliminary. rRevised. (n) When new orders for a prior month are negative because of cancellations, the percentage change calculation is
algebraically negative, even though there is a net dollar increase from the prior month to the current month. Using absolute values the percent Increase
in new orders, for shipbuilding and military tank vehicles in February was 266.0 percent.

1Shipments 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.
