Industrial Production is an economic indicator that reports the total value of the industrial output of a country or an economic region and covers sectors such as manufacturing, electricity, mining, gas and steam and air-conditioning (adjusted for inflation). Industrial output is a valuable indicator as it is closely correlated with other areas of interest such as employment, earnings and consumer confidence. Considering that production is highly influenced by changes in demand, Industrial Production is classified as a coincident indicator. When figures are higher than expected, they tend to have a positive effect on a country’s currency value.
