In January 2014, manufacturing output increased by 0.7%, after having remained stable in December 2013. On the opposite, output decreased slightly in industrial production as a whole (–0.2%, after –0.6% in December 2013).
During the last three months (q-o-q), output improved moderately in the manufacturing sector (+0.4%), as well as in industry as a whole (+0.3%).
Output rose in other manufacturing (+0.4%), in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+0.6%), and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+0.2%). Moreover it went up by +5.3% in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products. Meanwhile, output decreased by 0.4% in the manufacture of transport equipment.
Manufacturing output went up by 1.1% (y-o-y).
Output soared in the manufacture of transport equipment (+8.3%) and improved in a less sustained pace in other manufacturing (+0.5%) and in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+1.4%). On the opposite, output declined in the manufacture of food products and beverages (–2.2%) as well as in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (–2.9%).
Please note: all the series are adjusted for seasonal variations (SA) and the number of working days (WDA).
Warning: SA-WDA models were updated for this survey.
