The total production in the five machine-building industries was 8.2% higher than in March 2022. At the same time, the observed value of the level of recovery growth is influenced by the effect of the low base of last year. In general, according to Rosstat, for the first quarter of 2023, the total turnover of enterprises in all sectors of mechanical engineering decreased by 0.6% compared to the same period in 2022. Growth was observed in four of the five sectors. The cumulative result was influenced by a significant decline in the production of motor vehicles. At the same time, the seasonally adjusted PMI index of Russia's manufacturing industries, which tracks the general market situation, amounted to 52.6 points in April 2023, down from 53.2 points in March, but it is still significantly above the critical mark of 50 points.
