Industrial production volume index

(2005=100)

Compared to August of previous year, industrial production output in August 2011 at constant prices has increased by 6.4%, according to calendar adjusted data.Of which in mining and quarrying – by 25.2%, in manufacturing - by 6.5%, and in electricity and gas supply - by 2%.The increase in manufacturing mainly was influenced by two largest sub-sectors -  wood processing and metalworking.

The most notable industrial output rise in manufacturing was observed in manufacture of machinery and equipment – 71.1%, in manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment – 49%, and in manufacture of electrical equipment – 36.8%.The most notable turnover reduction, in turn, was recorded in manufacture of chemicals and chemical products – 24.6%, in manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations – 24.3%, and inmanufacture of other transport equipment (building of ships and boats, manufacture of railway locomotives and rolling stock) - 17.6%.

In comparison with July 2011, industrial production output in August 2011 (according to seasonally adjusted data at constant prices) has reduced by 0.4%, of which in manufacturing – by 1.6%, nevertheless in mining and quarrying there was an increase of 13.3% and in electricity and gas supply – of 0.2%.
