In June 2016, manufacturing output decreased (-1.2%)

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 June 2016, output decreased in the manufacturing industry (-1.2% after +0.1% in May). It declined again in the whole industry (-0.8% after -0.5%).

Manufacturing output diminished slightly over the second quarter (-0.2%)

Over the second quarter of 2016, output decreased slightly in the manufacturing industry (-0.2% q-o-q). It was virtually stable in the overall industry (-0.1% q-o-q).

Output decreased sharply in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-2.3%), and tumbled in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (-11.7%). It was stable in “other manufacturing”. Conversely, output rose in the manufacture of transport equipment (+1.7%) and to a lesser extent in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (+0.5%) and in mining and quarrying; energy; water supply (+0.3%).

Over a year, manufacturing output increased a little (+0.3%)

Manufacturing output of the second quarter of 2016 grew slightly compared to the same quarter of 2015 (+0.3%, y-o-y). Overall industrial output was also up (+0.4%).

Over a year, manufacturing output soared in the manufacture of transport equipment (+7.6%) and rose more moderately in “other manufacturing” (+0.5%) and in mining and quarrying; energy; water supply (+0.9%). On the contrary, it shrank markedly in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-3.0%) and in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (-2.4%), and plummeted in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (-13.2%).
