Date04 Dec 2022

“Soft landing" of industrial production - graphIndustrial production increased by 6.8 per cent year-on-year in October. However, it decreased by 0.7 per cent month-on-month, the Central Statistical Office (GUS) announced. Growth was registered in 25 of 34 industry groups. The automotive sector again took the top spot with 41.7 per cent. As in the previous month, the sectors with the largest decline were again the chemical industry with 12.1 per cent, as well as the energy production and utilities sectors. Industrial product prices continued to rise at an annual rate of 22.9 per cent, but there are signs that the level of growth will level off. Compared to the previous month, the increase was just 0.7 per cent.

There are also signs of stabilisation in the evolution of inflation. According to the GUS flash estimate, inflation was 17.4 per cent in November. This is the first decrease since March this year after an unbroken series of monthly increases. In October, inflation in Poland was still 17.9 per cent. Analysts and economists expect a further decline in economic growth for the final quarter of the year, without a hard recession. In 11 out of 16 provinces, companies have announced redundancies. This is not yet reflected in the unemployment statistics. According to a survey commissioned by the employers’ association Lewiatan, 65% of companies said they would put plans for further company development and investment on hold in the coming year.
