According to the Federal Statistical Office , new manufacturing orders rose by 2.5% between May and June.  This was also due to orders from the non-eurozone, which grew by 8.6% in the light of particularly large orders. By contrast, domestic orders fell by 1.0%, while eurozone orders declined by 0.6%. Adjusted for large orders, the fall in orders amounted to 0.4% compared with the previous month.
The second quarter as a whole saw manufacturing orders down by 1.0% compared with the previous quarter after a decline of 4.2% in the first quarter. While the volume of domestic orders and orders from the eurozone dropped by 4.1% and 3.4% respectively, orders from the non-eurozone rose by 4.5%. Adjusted for large orders, the fall in orders in the second quarter amounted to 2.1%.
The decline in manufacturing orders was noticeably slower in the second quarter. Business climate indicators, however, suggest that the turning point in industry has not yet been reached.
