Germany: Industrial production edges up in September

November 7, 2018

Industrial production expanded 0.2% over the previous month in September in seasonally-, price- and working-day adjusted terms. The print is slightly up from August’s revised 0.1% increase (previously reported: -0.3% month-on-month) and marginally ahead of market expectations. The expansion came on the back of a pickup in capital goods production and construction, which offset contractions in the production of intermediate goods; consumer goods; and energy.

Compared to the same month a year ago, industrial production increased 0.8% in September from a revised 0.2% expansion in August (previously reported: -0.1% year-on-year). Lastly, annual average growth in industrial production eased from 3.4% in August to 3.1% in September.
