Egypt: Industrial production carries solid growth momentum in November

January 21, 2015

In November, industrial production expanded 20.7% over the same month of the previous year, which was down from the 25.6% increase recorded in October. The result marks the fourth consecutive expansion above 20.0% and suggests that the economy is regaining its footing. November’s expansion was driven by growth in the tourism, transportation, and manufacturing sectors.

On a sequential basis, industrial production expanded 10.1% over the previous month, which contrasted the 10.9% decline registered in October. Annual average growth in industrial production rose from 5.4% in October to 8.4% in November.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect industrial production to increase 2.7% in 2015, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. The panel expects industrial production to grow 3.6% in 2016.
