World Manufacturing Production (Report)

Published on: Thursday, 10 Jun 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.
Since early 2020, the world has faced a global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, where countries around the world were forced to restrict business activity and close international borders, leading to strong impacts on manufacturing and most other sectors of the economy. Manufacturing in China and other countries in East and South-East Asia suffered the effects of the crisis earlier, during the first quarter of 2020, while the rest of the world registered production losses in the second and third quarters of the year. A gradual recovery in the manufacturing sector was observed in most countries soon after.
This report presents estimates for the first quarter of 2021 as well as revised estimates for the fourth quarter of 2020.
