US SUPPLY DISRUPTIONS INDEX (US SDI) -- March 2023
Our monthly supply disruption index (US SDI) combines 200 million shipment-level import records for the US, measuring temporary disruptions in consumer-supplier pairs.
In April, US SDI remains elevated and increased to 1.52 percentage points (pp) of consumer-supply pairs temporarily disrupted as compared with the pre-2020 average. However, this is a decrease compared to the peak level of supply disruptions in June 2020, which was 2.85pp higher as compared with the pre-2020 average.
Supply disruptions continue to persist with varying degrees across US regions, product categories, and countries of origin.
Among US regions, disruptions for US firms in the South (1.18pp), Midwest (1.53pp) and Northeast (1.09pp) remain above historical averages, while the West (0.63pp) is closer to normal levels.
Among product categories, non-durables (0.28pp) have reverted to pre-2020 levels, while manufacturing (1.45pp) and durable (1.29pp) product categories still face elevated disruption levels.
Among countries of origin, significant disruptions with China (1.21pp) and South Korea (2.42pp) still persist, whereas consumer-supplier relationships with France (0.67pp) have returned to pre-2020 levels during the first quarter of 2023.
