In January 2015, manufacturing output was almost stable (-0.1%)

Please note: all the series are seasonally (SA) and working-day adjusted (WDA).

The commentary shows variations of subsections by decreasing contribution. The contribution of a subsection depends on the extent of the change and on its weight.

In January 2015, output was almost stable in the manufacturing industry (–0.1%, after +1.1% in December), while it increased again in the industry as a whole (+0.4% after +1.4% in December).

Manufacturing output rose slightly over the last three months (+0.2%)

Over the last three months, output rose slightly in the manufacturing sector (+0.2% q-o-q), as well as in the industry as a whole (+0.2%, q-o-q).

Output improved in other manufacturing (+0.5%), in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (+0.9%), in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+0.5%) and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+0.9%).

Conversely, output declined significantly in the manufacture of transport equipment (–1.6%) and, to a lesser extent, in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–0.3 %).

Over the year, manufacturing output declined (–0.7%).

Manufacturing output of the last three months diminished compared to the same months of the previous year (–0.7% y-o-y). It declined more markedly in overall industrial output (–0.9% y-o-y).

Output went down in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (–1.7%), in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–1.9%), in the manufacture of transport equipment (–1.9%), to a lesser extent in other manufacturing (–0.2%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–1.1%).

On the contrary, output improved sharply in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+7.8%).

Revisions in December 2014

Revisions of changes
(in point %)
How to read it: in the manufacturing sector, the SA-WDA evolution between November 2014 and December 2014 is revised by –0.10 point: –0.21 is due to the raw data revision and +0.11 to the new calculation of the SA-WDA coefficients.
