The reading reflected a broad-based downturn across the major sectors, with manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply all contracting in September.

On a monthly basis, industrial production declined 0.4% in seasonally adjusted terms in September, easing from August’s 0.9% fall. Meanwhile, annual average industrial production growth fell to 2.4% in September (August: +3.3%). This signals a worsening trend in the industrial sector.
