World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Wednesday, 04 Mar 2020

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 output growth has been decelerating since 2018, and this trend has continued in the fourth quarter of 2019 amid trade tensions between the United States and China. Manufacturing output growth in the fourth quarter of 2019 went down to a rate of 0.7 per cent following a rate of 1.1 per cent in the previous quarter. The manufacturing sector, which plays a dominant role in global merchandise trade has been hit hard by tariffs and associated uncertainties.

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