The production of sporting goods in Spain recorded a 70 percent increase in December 2021 as compared to the same month of 2020, based on provisional data from the Spanish Statistical Office (INE). The performance also marks the fourth consecutive month of growth in the sector’s industrial production index (IPI). In fact, data show that the past year was filled with ups and downs in Spain’s sporting goods production, with a 143.1 percent IPI increase in January, for example, followed a few months later by a 35 percent drop in May, although the latter marked the worst monthly performance of the year.
