ISM Manufacturing Survey Suggests a Slowdown in US Exports

US DATA
MNI (London)

In October, the ISM manufacturing survey recorded a third consecutive month of contracting new export orders.

  • Prior to August 2022, the last recorded contractions in the ISM new export orders subindex were during the initial pandemic shock period of March to June 2020. A slowdown in European activity and weak Chinese growth amid Covid lockdowns are currently underpinning the continued decline in orders.
  • With the US dollar at multi-decade highs and domestic inflation seeing little relief, it is little surprise that global appetite for US goods is quickly dwindling.
  • The healthier US Q3 trade deficit saw a boost from energy exports as commodity prices increased and countries looked for alternatives to Russian supply. This largely drove the strong Q3 GDP print of +2.6% Q/Q annualised, which saw a 2.77pp boost on the back of net trade (of which exports made up 1.63pp, the highest since Q4 2021, with imports making up the remaining 1.14pp).
  • Going forward, the contraction of the ISM index implies exports will have less of a positive impact on overall activity.
