Turnover went down from the corresponding period of the previous year in nearly all manufacturing sub-industries. The drop was fastest in the electrical and electronics industry (-15.8%), in the metal industry (-8.8%) and in the textile, clothing and leather industry (-4.9%). Turnover grew in the food industry (1.4%) and in the forest industry (1.1%).

In the main categories of other industries, mining and quarrying decreased by 19.9 per cent in the second quarter compared to one year earlier. Turnover of electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply grew by 4.0 per cent and water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities by 0.2 per cent from one year ago.

The index of turnover in industry describes enterprises whose main industry is manufacturing. The calculation of the indices is based on the Tax Administration’s value added tax data which are supplemented with data obtained with Statistics Finland’s sales inquiry. The monthly turnovers of manufacturing enterprises can vary considerably, especially in the metal industries. The variation is mainly due to invoicing practices. The final invoice for major machinery deliveries and projects may be recorded in the sales of one month, even if the delivery had required the work of several months or years.
