Orders to U.S. factories for big-ticket manufactured goods fell by the largest amount in 51/2 years in January as demand for commercial aircraft suffered the biggest setback in seven years, the government reported Friday.

The Commerce Department said that orders for durable goods, everything from computers to cars, fell by 10.2 percent last month, a much bigger decline than had been expected.

The weakness was led by a 68.2 percent drop in orders for commercial aircraft reflecting a falloff in sales at Boeing Co. after two very strong months. Analysts said the overall decline overstated the weakness in manufacturing because it was so heavily influenced by the volatile aircraft sector.

Excluding airplanes, cars and other transportation products, orders posted a solid 0.6 percent rise after an even larger 1.9 percent increase in December. Analysts said the demand outside of aircraft showed that manufacturing was doing well at the start of 2006.

"The U.S. economy is bumping up against capacity constraints in many sectors, and businesses, particularly non-manufacturing businesses, are stepping up investment spending," said Daniel Meckstroth, chief economist for the Manufacturers Alliance/MAPI. "Durable goods will continue to lead the manufacturing expansion in 2006."
