Warning

The commentary shows variations of subsections by decreasing contribution to the overall evolution. The contribution of a subsection depends on the extent of the change and on its weight.

In September 2019, the turnover fell back in the manufacturing industry (−0.5% after +0.6% in August). It also slipped back in industry as a whole (−0.3% after +0.6%).

Export turnover recovered in September (+0.3% after −0.3% in August).

Rise over the third quarter (+0.5%)

Over the third quarter 2019, the turnover rose both in the manufacturing industry (+0.5%) and in industry as a whole (+0.5%), compared to the second quarter 2019. Within manufacturing, the turnover grew in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.5%) and increased slightly in “other manufacturing” (+0.2%). It was virtually stable in the manufacture of food products and beverages (−0.1%) and decreased in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−0.5%) and in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (−0.7%)

  • Sources: DGFiP, INSEE.

Sharp increase compared to the previous year (+3.4%)

Compared to the third quarter 2018, the turnover grew by 3.4% over the third quarter 2019 in the manufacturing industry. It also increased in industry as a whole (+3.1%). Within manufacturing, the turnover rose strongly in the manufacture of transport equipment (+13.2%). It also grew in “other manufacturing” (+1.7%), in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+3.6%), in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (+1.9%) and in mining and quarrying; energy; water supply; waste management (+1.5%). By contrast, it went down strongly in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (−10.9%).

It shrank sharply in the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products (−4.4% after +3.3%) and slightly in the manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c. (−0.3% after +1.6%). By contrast, it recovered in the manufacture of electrical equipment (+0.5% after −1.3%).

Export sales grew again, but slightly, in machinery and equipment goods in September (+0.3% after +0.4%).

Further fall in coke and refined petroleum products (−2.5%)

The turnover in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products fell again in September (−2.5% after −3.6%).

Slight rebound in food products and beverages (+0.2%)

The turnover in the manufacture of food products and beverages edged up in September (+0.2% after −0.6%). Export sales also recovered (+0.4% after −0.9%).

Further increase in “other manufacturing” (+0.6 %)

The turnover in “other manufacturing” increased again in September (+0.6% after +0.5%). It bounced back strongly in the manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations (+11.0% after −5.9%). It also grew in the manufacture of rubber and plastics products and other non−metallic mineral products (+1.0% after +0.2%) and in the manufacture of chemicals and chemical products (+0.4% after −1.2%). By contrast, it decreased slightly in the manufacture of wood and paper products; printing and reproduction of recorded media (−0.3% after +2.4%) and in other manufacturing, repair and installation of machinery and equipment (−0.6% after +1.5%). It fell back strongly in the manufacture of textiles, wearing apparel, leather and related products (−3.3% after +3.1%) as in the manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment (−1.0% after +2.2%).

Exports sales in “other manufacturing” recovered in September (+0.9% after −0.2%).
