Industrial output accelerates in September

Industrial production accelerated on an annual basis in September, growing 16.1% when accounting for refinery output (August: +15.5% year-on-year). September’s reading was driven by production at the state-owned oil company’s La Teja refinery, which was closed through much of last year.

Excluding refinery output, industrial production contracted 2.1% annually amid declining processed-food and -beverage output (August: -5.4% year-on-year).

Panelists surveyed for this month’s LatinFocus Consensus Forecast expect industrial output to increase 7.7% in 2019, which is up 0.2 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2020, the panel sees industrial output growth slowing to 4.1%.
