Italy: Expansion in industrial production accelerates in January

December’s softer decline reflected a increases in the manufacturing and mining and quarrying sectors more than offsetting a deterioration in the energy sector. Within the all-important manufacturing sector, the largest increase was recorded in the production of electrical equipment.

On an annual basis, industrial production contracted 2.4% in January in calendar-adjusted terms, following December’s less pronounced 1.6% drop. Meanwhile, the annual average variation in industrial production deteriorated from December’s minus 10.9% to minus 11.1% in January.
