German May Industrial Output Increased on Investment Goods

Industrial production in Germany, Europe’s largest economy, increased more than economists forecast in May, led by rising output of investment goods such as machines.

Production jumped 1.2 percent from April, when it fell a revised 0.8 percent, the Economy Ministry in Berlin said today. Economists had forecast a gain of 0.8 percent, the median of 32 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey showed. In the year, output rose 7.6 percent when adjusted for working days.
