Thailand: Downturn in manufacturing output intensifies in November

The manufacturing sector remained in a tough spot through November, with output falling 8.3% year-on-year, which was down from the revised 8.1% drop recorded in October (previously reported: -8.5% year-on-year) and marked the steepest fall in production since January 2014. Detailed data revealed that the sharp drop in output was driven by a broad-based fall in production, as all six main subsectors saw output decline. The strongest contractions in output were recorded in the automotive, petroleum, apparel, and rubber and plastic subsectors.

Meanwhile, manufacturing production fell 1.6% month-on-month in November, contrasting the revised flat growth rate recorded in October (previously reported: -0.4% month-on-month). Annual average manufacturing production fell 3.2% in November, down from the 2.4% fall logged in October.
