ISA Distributor Index Decreases in July

ISA members reported mixed conditions in the July ISA Economic Report from the industrial Supply Association. The ISA Manufacturer Index rose from 58.9 percent in May to 61.5 percent in June, while the Distributor Index decreased from 70 percent in May to 68.6 percent this month.

For each index, a reading above 50 percent indicates expansion, while a reading below 50 percent indicates contraction. The Indexes have been above 50 percent since December 2012.

“While the ISA Manufacturer and Distributor Indexes have moved in different directions for two months in a row, both groups remain positive about the economy,” said Bryon Shafer, general manager of ASG Industrial and chairman of ISA’s Strategic Information Committee. “The Anticipated Business conditions and Anticipated New Orders Index also moved in opposite directions in June. While manufacturers are more optimistic about the future than distributors, this month’s results show that the industry continues to expand.”
