Taiwan: Industrial output growth dips in July
Industrial output increased 2.6% compared to the same month of the previous year in July, which followed June’s 7.2% increase.
The figure was largely driven by a deterioration in manufacturing production. In contrast, electricity and gas supply output growth remained stable at the outset of Q3.
On a monthly basis, industrial output fell 0.2% in seasonally-adjusted terms in July, contrasting June’s 1.4% expansion. Meanwhile, the trend pointed down, with the annual average growth of industrial production coming in at plus 4.4%, down from June’s 4.5%.
