The Sales Managers Index: United States of America

Sales Managers Report Continuing  Price Increases in October

The big negative in October remains high level of the Prices Charged Index.

Sales managers views on price inflation continue to be divergent, with a significant proportion believing the current rapid rise of prices most likely to subside shortly as post pandemic product shortages return to more normal levels. But an increasing and higher number fear inflation is building up too rapidly for comfort and are far from complacent about the future course of prices.

Sales Growth and the Market Growth Indexes reflect continuing modest expansion in October.

Business Confidence stays way down from near all time high levels in July but remains positive.

The Staffing Index rose to 52.2 in October but firms still wary of (or finding difficulty in) recruiting staff.
