Modest furniture production growth in November but 4.5% up on year

The November 2016 UK furniture manufacturing output figure was published today and this shows modest growth on last year, with production levels 0.4% higher than they were a year ago but 0.8% less than the previous month’s figure of October.  

October however had been an extremely good month for UK furniture manufacturers as it showed a rise in output on the same month in 2015 of 11.2%.

If we combine the first 11 months of 2016 with the same months in 2015, it shows output growth this year on last year of 4.5%.
