World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Friday, 07 Jun 2019

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.
UNIDO has already reported on the global slowdown of world manufacturing production that has been evident since 2018 in previous publications, including the International Yearbook of Industrial Statistics 2019. This development is primarily attributed to emerging trade and tariff barriers involving the United States and China as well as the European Union.
Amid subdued economic activity, UNIDO's recent growth estimates indicate a continuation of the trend of modest growth rates. In the first quarter of 2019, global manufacturing output rose by 2.5 per cent compared to the same period of the previous year.

This report presents estimates for the first quarter of 2019 as well as revised estimates for the fourth quarter of 2018.
