The stock of merchandise in trade shoots up 11% in the second quarter, its highest rise in nine years

MADRID, 8 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The level of merchandise inventories in the commerce sector registered a year-on-year increase of 11% in the second quarter, its biggest increase since the beginning of the series, in 2013, according to the short-term survey on stocks and inventories (ECSE) published this Thursday by the National Statistics Institute (INE).

With the rebound in the second quarter, this indicator has now chained four quarters of positive rates after having accumulated a negative year, coinciding with the worst quarters of the crisis caused by Covid.

All the sectors analyzed in this survey experienced positive annual rates between April and June with the exception of the sale and repair of motor vehicles, which reduced its stock by 9.5% compared to the second quarter of 2021.

In contrast, the largest year-on-year rise was recorded by wholesale trade, with an increase of 18.1%, followed by retail trade, which increased its merchandise stock by 9.9% compared to the second quarter of last year.
