Every index in this issue is in value (tax excluded), seasonally and working day adjusted. The commentary shows variations of subsections by decreasing contribution. The contribution of a subsection depends on the extent of the change and on its weight.

In November 2015, the turnover bounced back in the manufacturing industry (+1.3%, after −1.0% in October). Exports recovered too (+1.6%, after −0.9%).

In the industry as a whole, the turnover also rebounded, though less markedly (−1.0%), due to a fall in the mining and quarrying; energy; water supply (−0.7%, after −0.9%).

Slight fall over the last three months (−0.2%)

Over the last three months, the turnover went down slightly in the manufacturing industry (−0.2% q-o-q) as well as in the industry as a whole (−0.3%).

The turnover dropped considerably in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−5.7%). It fell, to a lesser extent, in the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.5%) and in the electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (−0.2%). On the contrary, the turnover grew in the manufacture of transport equipment (+0.8%). It levelled off in other manufacturing.

Rise compared to last year (+0.5%)

The turnover went up over the last three months, compared to the same three months of the previous year, in the manufacturing industry (+0.5%, y-o-y) as well as in the industry as a whole (+0.7%).

Over this period, the turnover plummeted, owing to the price fall, in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−19.2%). On the contrary, it grew dramatically in the manufacture of transport equipment (+8.0%), and more moderately in the electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (+1.5%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+0.3%). It was stable in other manufacturing.
