In September 2014, manufacturing output increased (+0.6%)

In September 2014, manufacturing output increased (+0.6%), after a decrease in August (–0.5%). Output remained stable in industrial production as a whole, after a slight decrease of 0.2% in August 2014.

Manufacturing output rose slightly over the third quarter (+0.2%)…

During the third quarter (q-o-q), output rose slightly in the manufacturing sector (+0.2%), and a little more in industry as a whole (+0.5%).

Output increased in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (+2.3%), in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+1.7%), in the manufacture of transport equipment (+1.0%), and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+4.1%). Conversely, output went down in other manufacturing (–0.4%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–0.5%).

…and remained almost stable over the year (+0.1%).

Manufacturing output of the last three months hold almost steady compared with the same months of previous year (+0.1% y-o-y). Output in industry as a whole also levelled off (–0.1%).

Output increased strongly in the manufacture of transport equipment (+3.0%). On the contrary, output decreased in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–1.6%), in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (–0.8%) and in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–0.6%). Output hold steady in other manufacturing and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products.
