China: Industrial output growth improves in October

Industrial output rose 3.5% year-on-year in October (September: +3.1% yoy), above market expectations. The reading reflected a broad-based upturn, with activity in the manufacturing, energy and mining and quarrying sub-sectors all improving in October. This was likely the result of the easing of power constraints that had led to factory closures in September.

On a monthly basis, industrial production increased 0.4% in seasonally-adjusted terms in October, which was better than September’s flat reading. Meanwhile, annual average industrial production growth fell to 12.0% in October (September: +12.3%), signaling a worsening trend in the industrial sector.
