World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Thursday, 06 Dec 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.
World manufacturing growth further declined in the third quarter of 2018 amid rising tension over trade and tariffs among the leading manufacturers, especially the United States, the European Union and China. Compared to the same period of the previous year, global manufacturing output rose by 3.2 per cent in the third quarter of 2018, after growing by 3.8 per cent in the second, and 4.1 per cent in the first quarter of 2018. Overall, however, the expansion of manufacturing production was still relatively broad based among the different regions and/or development groups.

This report presents estimates for the third quarter of 2018 as well as revised estimates for the second quarter of 2018.
