- A current conditions index increased to 16.3 in January from 13.3, the first expansion since September.
- An expectations index dropped slightly to 13.5 from 13.8.
- Patrick Hussy, Sentix Managing Director, stated that expectations were moderating around the prior month’s level due to the continued impacts of supply constraints and high inflation levels.
