Australia: Industrial production accelerates in August

October 25, 2012

In August, industrial production expanded a seasonally adjusted 0.9% over the previous month, which came in above the 0.7% expansion observed in July. The acceleration reflected an improvement in manufacturing output as well as in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply. Compared to the same month last year, industrial output quickened from a working-day adjusted 3.0% increase in July to a 3.5% expansion in August, which represents the fastest pace in one year. Despite the faster monthly increase, the trend continues to point downwards, with annual average growth in industrial production falling from 2.2% July to 2.1% in August the slowest pace since September 2010.
