Ireland: Manufacturing production growth eases in July

September 7, 2020

Manufacturing output increased 8.8% month-on-month in seasonally-adjusted terms in July, a softer expansion compared to June's 14.3% increase.

July's reading was largely driven by a slowdown in modern sector output. In contrast, traditional sector production gained steam compared to the previous month.

On an annual basis, overall industrial production grew 12.9% in July, significantly above June’s 5.0% expansion.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists project industrial production to contract 1.5% in 2020, which is up 3.8 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2021, the panel sees industrial production growth of 5.2%.
