April 2014 Industrial Production: Steady As She Goes

The numbers aren't as spiffy as the out-of-this-world export growth numbers, but they’re pretty respectable (log annual and monthly changes; seasonally adjusted):

Industrial output rose by 4.0%, coming off last month’s 4.3% in log terms, with a pickup in mining helping to offset a pullback in manufacturing and electricity production.

March 2014 Industrial Production

The March numbers that came out on Monday didn’t show a full picture of health, but did confirm that 1Q2014 growth is going to be pretty decent (log annual and monthly changes; seasonally adjusted; 2000=100):

February 2014 Industrial Production

Last week’s IPI numbers gave me a headache – it’s part of another rebasing exercise, this time to 2010, which required a bit of work to splice – but things are looking up (log annual and monthly changes; seasonally adjusted; 2000=100):

February 2013 Industrial Production

I’ve been skipping a lot of data releases this month because work, and because of course with the elections a month away, there are more important topics to look at.

Nevertheless, the economy waits for no man, and this development is interesting enough to warrant a look (log annual and monthly changes; seasonally adjusted):

January 2013 Industrial Production

Yesterday’s industrial production numbers had some good, some bad (log annual and monthly changes; seasonally adjusted; 2000=100):

The good news is that in annual terms, industrial production is looking up a bit; the bad news is that the monthly numbers are flat to negative except in electricity production.

November 2012 Industrial Production

If you’re a pessimist over Malaysia’s economy. stop reading now. This post might be a little challenging.

Most months, industrial production and trade numbers generally track each other. This time, while export growth was somewhat positive, industrial output was by comparison positively bubbly. Yesterday’s industrial production report shows output building on last month’s positive increase and accelerating to 7.2% y-o-y in log terms (annual and monthly log changes; seasonally adjusted):

July 2012 Industrial Production: Not Good

I’ve had a busy time the last two days, hence haven’t been able to cover this when the data came out.
