The Kansas City Fed's Manufacturing Production Index fell to 10 in September 2021 from 22 in the previous month, the lowest since July 2020. Factory growth continued to be driven by a faster increase in durable goods, in particular primary metals, computer and electronic products, and transportation equipment, while nondurable goods manufacturing grew more modestly. “The pace of regional factory activity growth eased slightly but remained positive,” said Wilkerson. “Many firms continued to report rapid increases in input prices, difficulties hiring workers, and supply chain delays. However, production remains considerably higher than a year ago, with the most positive expectations for production in almost 20 years.” source: Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City
