Hungary: Industrial output grows at fastest pace since June 2021 in September
According to a second estimate by the Statistical Institute, industrial output rose 11.6% in year-on-year terms in September, which followed August’s 9.1% increase. September’s result marked the best reading since June 2021. The rise was partly driven by faster growth in manufacturing production. In contrast, mining and quarrying production lost steam.
On a monthly basis, industrial production rose 1.6% in seasonally adjusted terms in September, which was better than August’s 0.5% expansion and marking the best result since February. Meanwhile, the trend improved notably, with the annual average growth of industrial production coming in at 5.0% in September, up from August’s 3.9%.
