Please note:

All series are seasonally (SA) and working-day adjusted (WDA).

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 May 2019, output increased in the manufacturing industry (+1.6%, after a virtual stability in April), as well as in the whole industry (+2.1%, after +0.5%).

Manufacturing output increased over the last three months (+0.2%)

Manufacturing output increased slightly over the last three months (+0.2%), as well as in the whole industry (+0.5%).

Over the last three months, output grew strongly in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (+2.5%), in mining and quarrying, energy, water supply (+2.0%) and more moderetaly in “other manufacturing” (+0.2%). Conversely, it decreased in the manufacture of transport equipment (−1.2%), in the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.7%) and in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−1.0%).
