In January 2011, manufacturing output increased (+1.8%)Industrial production index - January 2011

In January 2011, manufacturing output increased in volume (+1.8%). It was almost stable in December 2010 (-0.2%). It was mainly driven by output of intermediate goods that meets the demands of Construction, rebounding after the trough of December due to climatic conditions. In the industry, output increased as well (+1.0%).; in January, the decrease in energy was due to a lower consumption of gas and electricity, still in line with the climatic conditions In the last three months (quarter-on-quarter change), the output increased in the manufacturing sector (+2.0 %) and in the industry as a whole (+2.2%).

…and slightly increased in the manufacture of transport equipment (+0.6%)

Output increased in the manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers (+1.5%) and decreased in the manufacture of other transport equipment (-0.7%).

Revisions : -0.11 point in December

In December 2011, manufacturing output was almost stable (-0.2%)

The revision of the raw series, due to delayed firms’ answers, especially apply to the manufacture of of machinery and equipment n.e.c. and to the “other manufacturing repair and installation of machinery”. The new calculation of the SA-WDA especially applies to the manufacture of rubber or plastics products, and other non-metallic mineral products.
