Latest Figures: Index of Industrial Production, Apr 2018

The Index of Industrial Production for April 2018 reached 118,3 units (base 2015=100), recording an increase of 7,7% compared to April 2017. For the period January – April 2018, the index showed an increase of 4,7% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year.

For Manufacturing, the index for April 2018 reached 127,0 units, recording an increase of 8,6% compared to April 2017.

Note that, as from this release, the Index of Industrial Production is presented with 2015 as a new base year (instead of 2010). The change of base year every five years is usual practice that aims at better reflecting changes in the structure of the industrial sector that had taken place over the five-year period. This procedure involves an update of the weights used for the calculation of the index and changes in the sample of enterprises.

Data for the Industrial Production Index with the new base year (2015=100) have been calculated for all years as from 2015 onwards and are presented in the Archive of the Key Figures. In the Archived Key Figures users can also find data with the previous base years: 2010=100, 2005=100 and 2000=100.
