The Durable Manufacturing Sector

The Armada Strategic Intelligence System (ASIS) is based on advanced analytical models that forecast manufacturing activity in the durable manufacturing sector and are reported in The Watch. The ASIS analytical models for manufacturing consider the complex interplay among over 20 economic indices and hundreds of variables. In-depth analysis, spanning over 20 years of data and market turns, has led to the development of the highly accurate models that inform our intelligence system.

The monthly manufacturing section in The Watch includes:

  • 18-month forecasts for:
    • Industrial Production for Manufacturing (IPMAN)
    • Principle Industrial Production inputs: Primary and Fabricated Metals
  • Twenty-year industrial production trend (including trendline) for manufacturing sectors
  • Additional insights and intelligence on trends, pricing (where available in the producer price index), and other industry-shaping factors (politics, global economic trends, etc.)

Industrial Production for Manufacturing (IPMAN) is a bellwether indicator for the overall US economy. Our forecasts for IPMAN and its associated sub-sectors, provide unparalleled insight into the product making portion of the economy. Durable manufacturing sectors reported on in The Watch include Aerospace, Computers, Electronics, Machinery, and Motor Vehicles.

The manufacturing section of The Watch is just one part of the full report that members receive. Since many sectors within industrial production rely on one another for component parts, a single subscription gives members visibility into the major categories of durable manufacturing.

The Watch subscribers include manufacturers; Tier 1, 2, and 3 suppliers; raw material producers, financial managers and many others. Executive managers across C-suite corporate management, finance and strategy, operations, credit and risk management, sales and marketing, and HR managers use the insights they gain from The Watch to make critical business decisions.
