Latest Trends in PPI Data for Fluid Power and End-Use Markets

The latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the Y/Y % change in fluid power equipment PPI starting to decline. The Y/Y % change appears to have peaked at 14.4% in July 2022, and now sits at 10.4%. The graph below shows this trend over time, and just how large the recent spike is historically.

In comparison, we can look at a few popular end use industries for fluid power. Below, you can see the producer price index, graphed with a year-over-year % change, for construction machinery, farm machinery, and automotive.

Construction machinery and farm machinery appear to be following a similar trend to the fluid power equipment PPI. Both series peaked in mid/late 2022 and have since trended downward. Automotive, however, does not follow this trend and has been slowly increasing since early 2020.
