KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 8 — Malaysia’s industrial production index (IPI) expanded 10.8 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y) in September 2022 compared with a growth of 13.5 per cent y-o-y in August 2022, said the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM).

In a statement today, the department said the sectors that contributed to September’s increase were mining (+15.0 per cent), manufacturing (+10.4 per cent) and electricity (+ 4.1 per cent).

It said the mining sector growth was spearheaded by the natural gas index (+21.0 per cent) as well as the crude oil and condensate index (+7.2 per cent).

The main sub-sectors that contributed to the manufacturing growth were electrical and electronics products (+15.5 per cent); petroleum, chemical, rubber and plastic products (+6.5 per cent) and transport equipment and other manufacturing products (+21.6 per cent), it added.

DOSM said the manufacturing sector was also driven by both domestic-oriented (+11.2 per cent) and export-oriented industries (+10.1 per cent).

For the third quarter that ended on September 2022, it said the IPI grew 12.2 per cent y-o-y, attributable to the growth in the manufacturing index (+13.4 per cent), electricity index (+9.0 per cent) and mining index (+8.6 per cent).
