Singapore’s manufacturing output expansion dips slightly to 14.6% in November

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s manufacturing output ongoing to increase in November, even though the pace of development slowed to 14.6 per cent calendar year-on-yr, formal knowledge on Friday (Dec 24) showed.

In Oct, producing output had expanded by a revised 17 for each cent

Excluding biomedical manufacturing, November’s 12 months-on-year output grew 12.4 for each cent, the Economic Progress Board (EDB) explained in a media release.

On a seasonally adjusted thirty day period-on-thirty day period foundation, production elevated 2.3 for each cent. Excluding biomedical producing, output grew 2.7 for every cent.

SLOWER Growth IN BIOMEDICAL Producing, Chemicals, Transportation ENGINEERING

The biomedical producing, substances and transportation engineering clusters eased in November, although the electronics, precision engineering and basic production industries expanded. 

In transport engineering, manufacturing progress eased to 31.2 per cent from October’s 35.3 for each cent expansion.

The aerospace phase grew 47.1 for every cent with increased need for servicing, maintenance and overhaul activities compared to a year in the past, when there was prevalent grounding of aircraft owing to COVID-19 global journey limits, mentioned EDB.

The maritime and offshore engineering section also rose 34 for each cent, with more function carried out in shipbuilding and fixing actions, in comparison to the lower foundation a calendar year back.

Biomedical production output expanded 20.1 per cent in November – a fall from October’s 56.8 for each cent.

The prescription drugs segment rose 31.2 for every cent with bigger creation of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

The health care technologies segment, having said that, reduced 13.1 for each cent on the back again of decreased export need for health care products, EDB stated.

Chemical substances output progress also slowed to 8.5 for every cent in November, when compared with a 15.3 for every cent rise in October, with the specialties section recording a contraction.


Electronics manufacturing expanded at a faster charge of 10.2 for every cent, up from October’s 6.7 for every cent, thanks to robust export desire throughout all segments.

Output in precision engineering also rose at a more quickly tempo of 13.7 for each cent in November, up from October’s 8.5 per cent, on the back again of increased creation of semiconductor products, industrial course of action gear and measuring products.

The normal production cluster grew 8.8 for each cent in November, as opposed with a .4 for each cent increase in October, with all segments recording an maximize in output .

The cluster’s advancement was mostly attributed to the miscellaneous industries segment, with better manufacturing of design-linked solutions, jewellery and sporting attire, said EDB.

The future month-to-month production effectiveness will be produced on Jan 26, 2022.
