Industrial production down by 17.1% in euro area and 17.3% in EU

In April 2020, the COVID-19 containment measures widely introduced by Member States continued to have a significant impact on industrial production. The seasonally adjusted industrial production fell by 17.1% in the euro area and by 17.3% in the EU, compared with March 2020, according to estimates from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. These are the largest monthly falls recorded since the start of the series, significantly higher than the 3% to 4% drops seen in late 2008 and early 2009 during the financial crisis.
