Kazakhstan: Industrial production contracts in July, falls to a 14-month low

August 17, 2015

Kazakhstan’s industrial production took a hit in July and contracted 2.1% in year-on-year terms. The reading contrasted the 1.3% increase reported in June and marked the deepest fall since June 2014.

The strong contraction resulted from a notable decrease in output of mining and quarrying, a contraction in electricity generation, as well as in water supply. Manufacturing production was the only sub-category that registered an increase in July.

As a result of the sharp decline, the overall trend fell in July. The annual average growth in industrial production fell from 0.7% in June to 0.5% in July.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect industrial production to contract 0.3% in 2015, which is up 0.5 percentage points from last month’s estimate. In 2016, the panel sees industrial production expanding 1.7%.
