Industrial production accelerates in July

In July, industrial output rose a seasonally-adjusted 0.7% over the previous month. The result marked an improvement over June’s revised 0.3% increase (previously reported: +0.5% month-on-month) and marked a six-month high. July’s figure was driven by an improvement in the manufacturing sector along with electricity, steam and gas.

Annual average growth in industrial production inched up from June’s minus 0.7% to minus 0.5% in July.
