Industrial output accelerates in July
Factoring in Uruguay’s major-player La Teja oil refinery, industrial output jumped 20.5% annually in July, up from June’s already-upbeat 17.1% expansion. Driving the surge was oil- and coal-derivative output. Meanwhile, annual average growth improved to 3.2% from 0.1% in June.
Industrial output excluding the contribution of La Teja, on the other hand, contracted 0.9% annually in July, an improvement on June’s 3.7% decline.
Panelists surveyed for this month’s LatinFocus Consensus Forecast expect industrial output to increase 7.2% in 2018, which is up 0.3 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2019, the panel sees industrial output growth slowing to 4.1%, unchanged from last month’s forecast.
