World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Monday, 06 Sep 2021

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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the global health care systems and national economies for over a year and a half, albeit with seasonal and regional differences. The gradual phasing-out of restrictions as well as widespread vaccination campaigns since early 2021 have improved the economic situation in many countries. By the second quarter of 2021, global manufacturing production registered an annual output growth of 18.2 per cent. Furthermore, nearly all economies with available information have achieved two-digit annual growth rates owing to the low base of comparison a year ago as well as the gradual economic re-opening.

This report presents estimates for the second quarter of 2021 as well as revised estimates for the first quarter of 2021.
