By bne IntelliNews June 8, 2015

On a calendar-adjusted basis, Turkey’s industrial production rose 3.8% y/y in April (market forecast: 3.1% y/y), after increasing 4.7% y/y in the previous month, data of the statistics office TUIK showed on June 8.

Durable consumer goods production was up 6.5% y/y, energy output rose 1.2% y/y, capital goods production increased 14% y/y and manufacturing production showed a 4.6% y/y rise in the month.

Industrial production on a calendar and seasonally adjusted basis remained almost unchanged in April compared to March (market forecast: -0.27% m/m).

On an unadjusted basis, Turkey’s industrial production increased 3.7% y/y in the month (market forecast: 3% y/y) after rising 4.9% y/y in March.

Turkey’s latest PMI data suggested a slight improvement in manufacturing activity. In May, the headline PMI figure rose for the second month running from March’s 71- month low but, at 50.2, signaled only a fractional rate of improvement, Markit said on June 1.
