World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Tuesday, 11 Sep 2018

Each quarter, UNIDO Statistics publishes a report summarizing current growth trends in world manufacturing production across countries and major sectors. The report is based on production data, which is collected and published by National Statistical Offices (NSOs) in UNIDO’s member states. This is the first statistical publication by UNIDO to be released on quarterly data. While much economic research is done on the basis of detailed annual statistics on business structure, other international data users, especially policymakers and businesses, require more recent assessments of production trends.
The rate of world manufacturing growth in the second quarter of 2018 slightly declined against the backdrop of escalating tensions over global trade. Despite these problems, global manufacturing output rose by 3.8 per cent in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of the previous year. Although the growth rate is below the 4.2 percent registered in the first quarter, it still indicates strong momentum.

This report presents estimates for the second quarter of 2018 as well as revised estimates for the first quarter of 2018 and expected growth figures for manufacturing value added (MVA) regarding 2018.
