In October 2014, manufacturing output decreased slightly (–0.2%)

In October 2014, manufacturing output decreased slightly (–0.2%), after a small increase in September (+0.3%). Output also declined in industrial production as a whole (–0.8% after 0.0% in September).

Manufacturing output rose over the last three months (+0.5%).

During the last three months (q-o-q), output rose in the manufacturing sector (+0.5%), as well as in industry as a whole (+0.3%).

Output increased in other manufacturing (+0.4%) and more significantly in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+10.9%). Additionally output went up in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+0.8). Conversely, output went down slightly in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–0.3%) and in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (–0.2%). It remained steady in the manufacture of transport equipment.

Slightly decreasing over the year (–0.3%).

Manufacturing output of the last three months diminished slightly compared to the same months of previous year (–0.3% y-o-y). Industrial output decreased as well (–0.6% y-o-y).

Output fell in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–2.1%), in mining, quarrying, energy and water supply (–1.4%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–1.9%). On the contrary, output went up sharply in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+12.3%). It was almost stable in the manufacture of transport equipment (+0.1%) as well as in other manufacturing (+0.1%).

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