U.S. Manufacturing Sector Regains Speed in May

June 7, 2022

U.S. manufacturing activity picked up in May as demand for goods remains strong, which could further allay fears of an imminent recession, but a measure of factory employment contracted for the first time in nearly a year. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported that its index of national factory activity rebounded to a reading of 56.1 last month from 55.4 in April. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in manufacturing, which accounts for 12 percent of the U.S. economy. Find more details in this Reuters report.
