Buyer's Breakdown: Push, Pull or Drag

The pandemic continues to punish industrial purchasing levels, but automotive and industrial supply buyers offer some opportunities.

Cortera, in partnership with Moody’s Analytics, uses their COVID-19 Economic Impact Tracker (CEIT) to provide a breakdown of purchasing data from thousands of companies in various sectors of the U.S economy. Every week, we sit down with Jim Swift, the founder and CEO of Cortera to discuss the tracker’s latest data and what it means to purchasing trends throughout the industrial marketplace. 

In this episode of the Industrial Buyer's Breakdown, Swift, along with editorial director Jeff Reinke, we discuss the CEIT’s latest findings, including:

  • The emergence of some positive purchasing indicators in the transportation sector.
  • How these trends are impacting other portions of these supply chains.
  • The geographic areas seeing some positive signs for manufacturing.
  • How new dynamics are impacting sectors that had positive results early in the pandemic, but have begun to fall off of late - like packaging and food processing.
