Turkey’s calendar adjusted industrial production rose 7.1% y/y in December 2013, the statistics institute TUIK said on Monday. Industrial production increased 3.4% in 2013 versus 2.5% in the previous year.
In unadjusted terms, industrial output increased 6.9% y/y which is higher than the market consensus of a 4.8% y/y increase. On the calendar & seasonally adjusted basis, industrial production did not change from December to November.
On a calendar-adjusted basis, output in the intermediate goods industry rose 6.9% y/y in December up from 5.3% y/y in November while the rate of output growth in durable goods sector accelerated to 11.3% y/y from 1.7% y/y.
