Malaysia: Industrial production rebounds in November

January 13, 2020

Industrial production gained traction in November, increasing 2.0% on an annual basis, up from the 0.3% rise in October which had marked a six-year low. The result came in above market expectations of 1.0% growth. Meanwhile, annual average growth in industrial output was stable at 2.5%.

The uptick came on the back of a recovery in mining and quarry production due to strong natural gas output, while growth in the manufacturing and electricity and gas sectors gathered pace.

On a month-on-month seasonally adjusted basis, industrial production rose 1.8% in November, contrasting the 1.0% decline in October.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect industrial production to rise 3.4.0% in 2020, which is up 0.4 percentage points from the previous month’s estimate, and 3.8% in 2021.
