In further signs of a weak first quarter, the ONS said Wednesday that construction output declined in February, falling 1.6% on the month.
The IIP recorded a growth of 8.54 percent in November, 7.1 percent in December and 7.4 percent in January, as per the revised data.
In February the central bank raised its growth forecasts for Britain due to the improving global economy and said interest rates were likely to rise faster and to a greater extent than it expected in late 2017.
The manufacturing sector, which constitutes over 77 percent of the index, grew at 8.7 percent in February as compared to the nearly flat growth of 0.7 percent in the same month a year ago. The output of intermediate goods which has the second highest weightage rose by 3.3 per cent. The pace of economic growth slowed slightly in 2017 as consumers suffered from higher inflation caused by a fall in sterling after June 2016's Brexit vote.
United Kingdom manufacturing output unexpectedly fell 0.2% in February - the first decline in nearly a year and down from revised growth of zero for January.
The consumer non-durables sector recorded a growth of 7.4 percent.
In terms of industries, fifteen out of the twenty three industry groups in the manufacturing sector have shown positive growth during the month of February 2018 as compared to the corresponding month of the previous year.
The ONS also released figures for construction output in February which showed a 1.6 percent drop after a 3.1 percent plunge in January - confounding the consensus expectation for a 0.7 percent increase on the month.
However, the March 2018 inflation is higher than 3.89 per cent recorded in the same month past year. The rate of price rise in protein rich items like eggs, milk and other products too moderated in March as against the previous month.
The U.K. economy lagged its peers in 2017 as uncertainty over the country's future ties to the European Union weighed on investment and high inflation squeezed consumer spending. Overall, inflation in the food basket was 2.81 per cent, lower than 3.26 per cent in February.
