Russia: Industrial production growth slumps to near two-year low in November

Industrial output rose just 0.3% year-on-year in November, decelerating considerably from October’s 2.6% increase and marking the weakest result since December 2017

November’s deterioration was chiefly driven by a considerable downturn in the manufacturing sector where output growth came to a near halt compared to October’s healthy expansion. On top of that, output stagnated in the electricity, gas and steam, and air conditioning supply sector, which, coupled with a sharper contraction in the water supply and sewage sector, weighed on the overall result further. On a more positive note, mining sector activity gained momentum in November, shielding the overall industrial sector from contraction.

On a monthly basis, industrial production fell 0.6% in seasonally- and calendar-adjusted terms, accelerating from October’s 0.2% dip. Meanwhile, annual average growth in industrial production inched down to a 13-month low of 2.4% in November from 2.6% in October.
