World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Wednesday, 28 Sep 2022

Each quarter, UNIDO Statistics publishes a report summarizing current growth trends in world manufacturing production across countries and major sectors. The report evaluates production data, 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 a lot of economic research is based on detailed annual statistics on business structure, other international data users, especially policymakers and businesses, require more recent assessments of production trends.

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis kept weakening during the second quarter of 2022. Nevertheless, the pandemic still exerts a significant influence on global manufacturing production, although with strong regional and sectoral differences. Moreover, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine remains an important source of global uncertainty for the forthcoming months, given its effects on the supply of raw materials, foodstuff and energy. This compounded ongoing global supply chains problems, leading to rising commodity prices and generalized inflation across the world. In the second quarter of 2022, world manufacturing production continued growing at a stable pace with a year-over-year growth rate of 3.1 per cent. Industrial economies registered a growth rate of 2.6 per cent, the lowest recorded since the fourth quarter of 2020. Other industrializing economies registered a year-over-year output increase of 10.4 per cent.

This report presents estimates for the second quarter of 2022 as well as revised estimates for the first quarter of 2022.
