Excluding biomedical manufacturing, which dipped  9.2% YoY, the manufacturing output would have risen by 4.2% YoY.

On the flip side, most clusters performed well in June, led by transport engineering with an output expansion of 32.0% YoY. Growth in the cluster was driven by double-digit increases across its marine & offshore engineering (+44.0% YoY) and aerospace segments (+32.0% YoY).
