Czech Republic: Industry expands in January

February 13, 2015

In January, industrial production grew 2.9% over the same month last year, coming in below the 7.3% contraction observed in December. According to the Statistical Office, January’s expansion came on the back of increased manufacture of vehicles and of electrical and transport equipment.

A sequential comparison shows that industrial production decelerated from a 0.6% rise in December to a 0.4% increase in January.

The trend continued to moderate as annual average growth in industrial production inched down from 4.9% in December to 4.7% in January, which marked the lowest rate in eight months.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect industrial output to expand 4.4% in 2015, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. For 2016, panelists expect industrial output to expand 5.0%.
