In January, manufacturing output expanded 7.3% over the same month the year before, up from the 5.1% expansion recorded in December (previously reported: +4.7% year-on-year). The increase was mostly driven by resilient production of transport equipment and supported by higher output in electrical and machinery industries. A month-on-month analysis corroborates the robustness of the annual figure, as manufacturing output increased 3.6% over the previous month in seasonally adjusted terms (December: +0.2% mom). The broader industrial production index contracted 1.7% year-on-year, down from the 4.9% increase observed in December. As a result, the trend deteriorated, with the annual average variation in industrial production falling from 7.0% in December to 6.3% in January.

According to the CBS, the improvement reflected the fact that producers had become less positive regarding future output and order books over the next three months but more positive about their stock of finished products.
