During the last three months (q-o-q), output increased in the manufacturing sector (+0.6%), as well as in industry as a whole (+1.0%).

Output improved sharply in the manufacture of transport equipment (+5.0%) and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (+8.1%). It increased slightly in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment (+0.8%). On the contrary, output decreased in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-1.1%) and remained stable in other manufacturing.

…and was lower than its last year’s level by 1.9%.

Manufacturing output fell by 1.9% (y-o-y).

Output went down in other manufacturing (-2.4%), in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-2.3%), in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment and machine equipment (-1.1%) and in the manufacture of transport equipment (-1.4%). On the opposite, manufacturing output bounced by 13.9% in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products.

Please note: all the series are adjusted for seasonal variations (SA) and the number of working days (WDA).
