The increase was attributed to energy production rising by 2.9%, non-durable consumer goods by 2.7%, durable goods by 2.5%, capital goods by 1.4% and intermediate goods by 0.7% compared with the same period of the last year.

The data also showed that among EU member states, the largest increases in industrial production on yearly basis were reported in Ireland (+8.8%), Malta (+8.1%) and Hungary (+7.8%) while the steepest decreases were seen in Croatia (-4.9%), Finland (-4.2%) and Latvia (-3.5%).
