Croatia: Industrial production growth speeds up in August

October 2, 2017

Industrial output in August increased 3.2% in working-day adjusted terms from the same month last year, following July’s softer 2.5% expansion.

August’s result was driven by healthy expansions in the manufacturing and electricity, gas, steam, and air conditioning supply sub-sectors, although the mining and quarrying sub-sector continued to contract, albeit softly, in August.

On a month-on-month basis, industrial production in August expanded 0.3% in seasonally- and working-day adjusted terms, contrasting July’s 1.1% decrease. Annual average growth in industrial production in August came in at 3.9% (July: +3.8% year-on-year), the highest reading in five months.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect industrial production to expand 3.0% in 2017, which is down 0.3 percentage points from last month’s estimate. In 2018, the panel sees industrial production growth decelerating to 3.1%.
