Factory Orders

Orders that companies make for both durable goods and non-durable goods that they wish to sell to customers. Examples of durable goods include cars and flatware (because they are intended to last longer than three years), while examples of non-durable goods include food and clothing. If factory orders increase, it is a sign of a healthy economy because it shows that consumers are willing to make purchases. As such, factory orders are a major economic indicator.
