In July 2017 industrial production, also thanks to software for optimising the process and the 4.0 Industry Plan, grew 4.4% over the year. Istat notes that the trend index has been growing almost uninterrupted since August 2016, with the sole exception of January 2017. Capital goods are the driving force, having seen a sharp increase of 5.9% on the year, and “are the only sector well above the 2010 level.” Consumer goods (+ 4.1%), intermediate goods (+ 3.5%) and energy (+ 3.3%) are also up.
The motor vehicle sector has seen a sharp increase over the year, up by 9.1% in July. Also mining activities, machinery and the food industry are doing well. Among the sectors that are struggling are clothing and leather. Gentiloni: “The country is recovering, albeit with difficulty.” Calenda: “Resources for Business are creating jobs”.
“Among the sectors, the one that stands out is automotive production, which saw a rise of 9.1% in July 2017 compared to the same month in 2016.” In the first seven months of the year, the increase recorded by ISTAT was 10%. On a year by year basis, also mining activities (+ 8.4%), machinery and equipment manufacturing n.e.c. (+ 8.0%), the food industry, beverages and tobacco and transport manufacture (both +6,9%) are going well. Decreases have instead been recorded in the sectors of electrical and non-electrical household appliance manufacture, the manufacture of computers, electronics and optics, electro medical appliances, measuring devices and timepieces (both -0.6%) and the textile industries, clothing, leather and accessories (-0.5%).
Overall, the figures most certainly confirm a trend towards recovery of the Italian economy, Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni also points out: “The figures on today’s industrial production are figures that only one or two years ago, we would have considered impossible to achieve, the country is recovering albeit with difficulty.” Meanwhile, former Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi underlines this with a tweet: – “Industrial production + 4.4% (Istat).
The Minister of Economic Development, Carlo Calenda also underlines the continuing recovery, in addition to the need to support it with appropriate policies: “The annual growth of 4.4% in industrial production, indicated by Istat is a new positive sign of recovery in Italy’s manufacturing system. Notably, the Capital Goods index (+ 5.9%) and even more significant growth in the manufacturing of machinery and equipment (+ 8.0%) indicate that the Industrial National Plan 4.0 is working to encourage and support company investments. The figures confirm the efficiency of the decision to eliminate ineffective incentives by introducing automatic tax breaks which are not tied to a specific industry sector or scale. We should continue to work on supply polices, focusing resources to help companies that can produce and create jobs. ”

Production is growing in Italy, and according to ISTAT figures, manufacturing industry is expanding fast, with an increase of 60%.
The economic recovery will gain speed thanks to a positive “contagion effect” between various sectors. ISTAT presents a rosy view of prospects over the coming months. “The Italian economy is accelerating due to widespread growth in production and an increase in employment”, writes the national institute of statistics, which just last week confirmed that GDP is at its highest level in six years.
And the growth will not stop there, since the forecasted figures – indicators for the immediate future – indicate a strengthening in growth prospects. Meanwhile, tax revenue is up, with an increase of 1.6% in the first half of the year, according to the Ministry of Economy and Finance, pointing to the rise in VAT revenue (up 4.4%).
THE CONTEXT. The institute of statistics is talking about a contagion effect between individual sectors. “The recovery will be widespread and concerted”
Overall, then, estimated growth appears to have been exceeded, and now it’s just a case of the most eagerly-awaited indicator of all, the government’s own. The updated Document of Economy and Finance (DEF) is shortly to be published, and the bar of annual growth – still stuck at 1.1% – looks set to rise.
Deputy minister for the Economy Pier Paolo Baretta assures us: “In the next ten days or so, by 20th September at the latest, the task of finalising the plan for growth will be completed”. As yet he has made no comment on the figures.
According to ISTAT, however, if the pace of the past three months is maintained (+0.4%), a GDP of 1.5% is within reach. But where is the recovery coming from? On this occasion there is not one single factor; for ISTAT it’s a question of a “concerted” growth spread throughout production sectors, as explained in the institute’s most recent statement. To the extent that 60% of manufacturing firms are in expansion in the reference sectors, while the service sector is up by more than 50%.
ISTAT: “The Italian economy is accelerating”. Growth exceeds expectations
On the other hand, the latest figures show that in investment terms it’s all systems go: investment is up once again after a difficult start to the year (+0.7%) , and so is self-employment.
