Over a month, output went up in most industries

In April 2023, output recovered over a month in mining and quarrying, energy, water supply (+1.8% after ‑1.2%). It increased in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.0% after ‑0.1%): it was up notably in the manufacture of “other transport equipment” (+4.7% after ‑0.7%) but it fell back in the manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers (‑1.8% after +0.8%). It picked up in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (+1.4% after ‑1.2%) and went up more slightly in the “other manufacturing” industries (+0.3% after ‑0.9%). It bounced back substantially in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum (+23.6% after ‑45.2%) where the strikes in refineries were less significant than in March. On the contrary, output decreased again in the manufacture of food products and beverages (‑0.3% after ‑0.4%).

Over a year, manufacturing output increased by 1.6%

In the manufacturing industry, output of the last three months (February to April 2023) was 1.6% higher than that of the same months a year ago. It increased more moderately in the whole industry (+0.7%).

Over this one-year period, output expanded markedly in the manufacture of transport equipment (+18.1%), particularly in the manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers (+28.7%), less impacted than last year by supply difficulties for electronic components. It increased in the manufacture of machinery and equipment goods (+5.0%). On the contrary, output declined in mining and quarrying, energy, water supply (‑3.9%), in the “other manufacturing” industries (‑1.2%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (‑2.1%). Finally, output plummeted in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum (‑10.5%).

Over a year, output declined sharply in some energy-intensive industries

In the context of high electricity and gas prices invoiced to firms given the contracts agreed in 2022 for 2023, energy-intensive industries are particularly exposed to rising production costs, which may affect their output. Output in the last three months (February to April 2023) was thus down sharply compared to that of the same months a year ago in the manufacture of basic iron and steel and of ferro-alloys (‑22.7%), the manufacture of pulp, paper and paperboard (‑24.7%) and the manufacture of basic chemicals (‑15.5%).
