Manufacturing Industry Output Tracker

In a fast-moving sector with complex correlations, it is critical to understand the state of the market now, where it was, and where it will be. This report quantifies the total value of manufacturing production with deep granularity – for over 35 industries, across 44 countries, and presenting 15 years of historical data – for a complete business cycle, pre-recession to the present day.

We’ve carefully organised the country data around a common taxonomy to provide easy-to-interrogate, like-for-like comparisons. Credible five-years forecasts round out the view.
