United kingdom factories manufactured 129,114 engines in October, down 34.six%, calendar year on calendar year.
Manufacturing for both domestic and export marketplaces fell 35.four% (to fifty,992) and 34.one% (to 78,122) respectively.
Yr to day motor producing was down six.nine% to one,407,231 units in comparison to a weak 2020 and 35.four% below the five-calendar year common.
Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, mentioned: “With motor output declining for the fifth consecutive month, this stressing trend demonstrates no indication of easing. The around the world shortage of semiconductors, a critical component in both engines and concluded cars, proceeds to wreak havoc on production.”
