Export orders remained subdued (-12 vs -12), domestic price expectations increased (57 vs 48) and output expectations declined (-2 vs 6). "From rising prices to bottlenecks in supply chains, manufacturers continue to operate against a background of high input costs and significant operational delays. When coupled with an oncoming economic downturn, it’s not surprising to see orders and activity ebb away as we move through the year", Alpesh Paleja, CBI Lead Economist, said. source: Confederation of British Industry

The Confederation of British Industry's order book balance fell to -7 in the three months to August of 2022 from 8 in July, and compared to market forecasts of 3.

Export orders remained subdued (-12 vs -12), domestic price expectations increased (57 vs 48) and output expectations declined (-2 vs 6).

UK Factory Orders Fall to Over 1-Year Low
The Confederation of British Industry's order book balance fell to 8 in July of 2022, the lowest reading since April of 2021, from 18 in the previous month. Both export orders (-12 vs +1) and stocks of finished goods (-7 vs +2) declined and output expectations eased (+6 vs +20). At the same time, domestic price growth is seen slowing (+48 vs +58). “The manufacturing sector has been an economic bright spot in recent months, but output and orders have softened amid ongoing cost pressures, supply challenges and a generalised weakening in economic conditions both in the UK and globally. It is encouraging, however, to see investment intentions firming", Anna Leach, CBI Deputy Chief Economist, said.

UK Factory Orders Gauge Falls More than Forecast
The Confederation of British Industry's order book balance fell to 15 in June of 2022 from 26 in the previous month and below market expectations of 22. Manufacturing output growth slowed in the three months to June (25 vs 30 in May), and growth is expected to ease further in the three months ahead, but expectations remain well above their long-run average. Expected domestic price growth for the three months ahead eased markedly in June (58 vs 75), the weakest expectations for selling price inflation since September 2021. “While manufacturing output is still being supported by a backlog of orders, growth appears to be softening. Stocks of finished goods are now seen as broadly adequate and we may be seeing the first signs that weaker activity is beginning to slow the pace of price increases in the sector.”, said Anna Leach, CBI deputy chief economist.
