How it will look in the coming months is difficult to say but normally the production goes down a bit in the summer due to holidays not only in Poland but also in rest of Europe and the rest of the world for that matter.

Another important factor is also the war in Ukraine caused by the Russian invasion. If it keeps going on it will for sure have a negative affect on the world economy and will therefore also have a negative influence on the orders in the Polish industry.
