World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Wednesday, 06 Dec 2017

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 accelerated in the third quarter of 2017, as economic recovery strengthened worldwide. Positive results reported in the first half of this year carried over into the third quarter. Steady progress over several consecutive quarters characterizes both industrialized and developing and emerging industrial economies, and prospects for sustained global industrial growth in forthcoming periods are good. For the first time in several years, industrial growth moved back to the positive zone in all of the major economies.

This report presents estimates for the third quarter of 2017 as well as revised estimates for the second quarter of 2017.
