August of 2022 shows yet another extremely strong month in POS activity; it’s a full 25 percent ahead of the same month last year. This year is showing absolutely no sign of a slowdown as we are two-thirds of the way into 2022.

The last four months show an increase of more than nine percent when being compared to the first four months of the year. Continued growth has been evident and actually record-setting over the past several months. The question remains: when will this trend begin to slow down?

Our opinion is that POS will continue to be strong for the balance of 2022. Manufacturers are continuing to add inventory in anticipation of a future downturn but at this time there is no evidence of a slowing of POS activity. Over 85 percent of the companies that we are using to create our POS Index are up for the year, many of them substantially.
