In May 2011, the manufacturing output clearly increased in volume (+1.5%). It was barely stable in April 2011 (+0.1%).

In the industry, output strongly increased as well (+2.0%).

This increase is not due to the lack of trading days or bridges, which as been calculated in the SA-WDA data.

In the last three months, the manufacturing output increased (+0.9%)…

In the last three months (quarter-on-quarter change), the output increased in the manufacturing sector (+0.9%) and was stable in the industry as a whole (+0.1%).

The output increased in the “other manufacturing” (+1.6%, q-o-q) and in the electrical, electronic equipment and machine equipment (+1.6%).

In the opposite, it decreased in the manufacture of transport equipment (-1.9%).

…and exceeded it’s last year’s level by 4.8%

The manufacturing output rose by 4.8% (y-o-y). It soared in the “other manufacturing” (+4.8%), in the electrical and electronic equipment and machine equipment (+8.4%) and in the manufacture of transport equipment (+3.9%).

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

… in the manufacture of electrical or electronic equipment and machine equipment (+2.3%) …

The output increased in the manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c. (+2.5%), in the manufacture of electrical equipment (+3.0%) and in the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products (+1.2%).

… as well as in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.6%)

The output increased in the manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers and in the manufacture of other transport equipment (+2.5%).

Revisions : -0.11 point in April

In April 2011, the manufacturing output was barely stable (+0.1%)

The revisions are due to the revision of raw series in the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products and in the “other manufacturing, repair and installation of machinery”.
