Brazil’s industrial output declined by 1.3 percent over a month earlier in July of 2021, worse than market expectations of a 0.5 percent decrease and followed a revised 0.2 percent contraction in June. The latest reading marked the second straight month of decreases, with 19 out of 26 industrial branches under pressure, notably beverages (-10.2 percent); food products (-1.8 percent); and production of motor vehicles and trailers (-2.8 percent), as many automakers are facing temporary stoppages due to the global semiconductor chip shortage. In contrast, the output for coke, petroleum products and biofuels recorded the biggest positive contribution (2.8 percent). The uneven impact of the pandemic across different sectors and regions, raw materials shortages and mounting supply chain issues, which pushed production costs higher, remained the main risks to industrial activity. On an annual basis, industrial production rose 1.2 percent, slowing markedly from a 12.0 percent hike in June. source: Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE)

On the other hand, the output for coke, petroleum products and biofuels recorded the biggest positive impact (up by 4.1%). The industrial sector remains under pressure due to the pandemic as restrictive measures, such as the reduction of the production rhythm, raw materials shortages and rising production costs continue to weigh.
