FRANKFURT-German industrial production rose sharply in January from the month before, beating forecasts, led by a spurt in capital-goods output.
The Destatis statistics body on Wednesday forecast a further revival in industrial activity in light of improving business sentiment, despite a drop in manufacturing orders at the start of the year.
Industrial output in Europe's largest economy rose 2.8% in January from the month before, adjusted for seasonal swings and calendar effects. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal predicted an increase of 2.5%.
Capital goods output jumped 6.1% on the month, following a sharp decline in December. Construction output, however, fell for the second straight month, possibly set back by cold weather.
Compared with January 2016, industrial output was flat, taking account of calendar effects, but jumped 6.6% in non-adjusted terms.
