TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Industrial production in Germany unexpectedly fell 1% month-over-month in April of 2021, compared to market forecasts of a 0.5% rise, amid semiconductor shortages and other supply chain disruptions that were exacerbated by the blockage of the Suez Canal in early April. Production decreased for consumer goods (-3.3%), intermediate (-0.2%), capital goods (-0.1%) and construction (-4.3%) but increased for energy (6%). Year-on-year, industrial output surged 26.4% due to low base effects from 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic hit the economy hard. Compared to February 2020, industrial output was down 5.6%.
