World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Thursday, 07 Mar 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.
World manufacturing growth further declined in the fourth quarter of 2018 amid high geopolitical uncertainty and ongoing tensions 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 2.4 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2018, down from 3.1 per cent in the previous quarter. The global manufacturing growth rates have been consistently declining since the second half of 2017, both in industrialized as well as in developing and emerging industrialized economies.

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