13/6/2013: Irish Construction Sector Activity Post Some Better News: Q1 2013

Some good news for Irish construction sector (not as impressive as German stuff, but... much more welcome, given the sector dynamics so far through the crisis).

Per CSO: "The volume of output in building and construction was 4.4% higher in the first quarter of 2013 when compared with the preceding period.

  • This reflects increases of 6.8% and 1.2% respectively in residential building and non-residential building. 
  • There was a decrease of 0.7% in the volume of civil engineering.  The change in the value of production for all building and construction was +1.9%. 
  • On an annual basis, the volume of output in building and construction increased by 10.7% in the first quarter of 2013.  
  • There was an increase of 9.5% in the value of production in the same period. 
  • The annual rise in the volume of output reflects year-on-year increases of 26.8% and 2.4% respectively in civil engineering and non-residential building work. 
  • Output in residential building decreased by 2.5%"
Now, graphs and a summary table for more detailed analysis:
