Industrial production output in November 2012

03.01.2013

Seasonally adjusted data (at constant prices) of the Central Statistical Bureau show that, in comparison with October 2012, industrial production in November 2012 increased by 1%,of which in mining and quarrying by 4.1% and in manufacturing by 3.5%, while in electricity and gas supply there was a decrease of 3%.

Industrial production volume index
(2005=100)

Rise in manufacturing was mainly due to the fruitful manufacture of products of wood (except furniture) – growth of 4.7%, repair and installation of machinery and equipment (repair and maintenance of ships and boats, repair of fabricated metal products, machinery and equipment, installation of industrial machinery and equipment) – increase of 18.4%, manufacture of non-metallic mineral products – rise of 19.7%, and manufacture of fabricated metal products – growth of 8.8%. Whereas decrease was recorded inmanufacture of other transport equipment (building of ships and boats, manufacture of railway locomotives and rolling stock) - of 46.3%, in manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products – of 15.9%, in manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers – of 5.2%, and in manufacture of textiles – of 4.9%.

Compared to November a year before, industrial production output in November 2012 (according to calendar adjusted data at constant prices) grew by 3.9%, of which in manufacturing – by 7.9%, while in mining and quarrying as well as in electricity and gas supply there was a decrease of 4.4% and 7.1%, respectively. Increase in the manufacturing turnover was mainly influenced by the sub-sectors engaged inmanufacture of basic metals, repair and installation of machinery and equipment and manufacture of non-metallic mineral products. Whereas drop in manufacturing was observed in manufacture of textiles - of 13.3%, in manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers – of 8.1%, and in manufacture of other transport equipment  - of 6.4%.
