World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Thursday, 22 Mar 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 production continued to grow in the fourth quarter of 2017, maintaining the upward trend that has been observed since the beginning of the year. Industrialized economies gained further strength in manufacturing production and confirmed their dynamic growth. Improvements in business conditions, rising consumer spending and promising investment plans are some of the driving forces behind the positive developments in global manufacturing. The growth of manufacturing production was observed across all industrialized and developing regions in the last quarter of 2017 compared to the same period of the previous year, which confirms the sustained recovery of manufacturing production both in advanced and in emerging economies.

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