- Today Polish industrial output
Polish industrial output rose in September by 5.6% y/y vs 5.0% market expectations after three negative surprises. In seasonally adjusted terms there was a rebound from 1.7% y/y to 3.5%, but this is still far below 1H average at almost 6%. So industry is slowing down, but in a gradual manner, and so is in our view the whole economy. PPI inflation showed 0.9% y/y in September, markedly surprising to the upside (consensus at 0.5% y/y).
Uncertainty remains the key theme, both locally and externally. The global monetary easing cycle is in progress and the discussion about a coordinated fiscal stimulus broadens, and yet it remains uncertain how quickly it is going to heal the economic growth outlook. So far, the malaise in international trade and manufacturing continues, with an increasing risk of spillover to labour markets and services. As we have argued before, the more prolonged the stagnation in Europe, the greater potential threat for Polish economy, despite our relative resilience and the government’s fiscal package serving as a cushion against external shocks. The latest high-frequency data suggest that Polish GDP growth slowed to c.4% y/y in the third quarter, which still allows us to keep our GDP forecast at 4.3% for the entire 2019 and at 3.5% for 2020. However, the risks are mounting.
