Annualized industrial output in the United Kingdom probably expanded 2.8% in April, following another 2.3% increase during the preceding month. In monthly terms, industrial production probably increased 0.4% in April, after declining 0.1% in the previous month. The index presents the change in the total inflation-adjusted value of production in sectors such as manufacturing, mining and energetics.
UK’s annualized manufacturing production, a short-term indicator which accounts for almost 80% of nation’s industrial output, probably expanded 4% in April. In March manufacturing output rose at an annualized pace of 3.3%. In monthly terms, production probably increased 0.4% during April. As it is a key component of country’s Gross Domestic Product, in case manufacturing production expanded more than projected, this would have a bullish effect on the sterling.
