In June 2016, the turnover fell again in the manufacturing industry (−0.7%) but it was more moderatly than in June (−4.4%). The exports declined slightly (−0.3%) after a fall in June as a backlash after the major ship delivery occurred in May.

In the industry as a whole, the turnover weakened only a little (−0.2 %) thanks to the rebound in the mining and quarrying, water supply, waste management sector (+2.3 %, after −1.4 %).

Rise over the last three months (+0.8%)

Over the last three months, the turnover advanced in the manufacturing industry (+0.8%) and in the industry as a whole (+0,7 %). This rise was only due to the manufacture of transport equipment (+9.8%). Over this period, the turnover fell in all the other sectors: “other manufacturing” (−1.3%), the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (−0.9%), the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−1.7%) and the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.2%).

Decline compared to the previous year (−1.0%)

In the manufacturing industry, the turnover declined over the last three months, compared to the same three months of the previous year (−1.0%). It also shrank in the industry as a whole (−1.2%).

Over this period, the turnover tumbled in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−21.3%). It declined in “other manufacturing” (−1.6%), the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (−2.8%) and the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.8%). However, it surged in the manufacture of transport equipment (+7.5%)

New decline in “other manufacturing” (−1.0%)

The turnover in “other manufacturing” shrank again in July (−1.0%, after −0.9% in June). It decreased mainly in the manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products (−1.6%) and the manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations (−3.9%). Conversely, it recovered in the manufacture of chemicals and chemical products (+1.4%, after −1.8%), the only sector in “other manufacturing” whose turnover advanced in July.

Further fall in food products and beverages (−0.5%)

In July, the turnover decreased slightly again in the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.5% after −0.4% in June).

New decrease in machinery and equipment goods (−0.9%)

The turnover in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods dropped again in July (−0.9%, after −1.2%).
