The dominant manufacturing sector saw a decline in production, while mining and quarrying, and the energy sector saw a rise.

On a monthly basis, industrial production swung from a seasonally- and working-day adjusted 0.7% expansion in March to a 0.8% contraction in April. Meanwhile, annual average growth in industrial production inched down from 2.3% in March to 2.1% in April.
