“3Q indicators point towards a softer landing for global manufacturing in 2020, but a spike in new COVID-19 cases in Europe will provide further headwinds.”

This tracker offers the most complete and unified analysis of the manufacturing industry globally. It quantifies the total value of manufacturing production with deep granularity for over 35 industries and machinery sectors, across 39 countries; presenting 13 years of historical data alongside a credible five-year forecast.

Country data from across the globe has been carefully organised around a common “Manufacturing Industry Outlook (MIO)” taxonomy to provide easy-to-interrogate, like-for-like comparisons. The historical data reveals the relationship between industry and machinery production for a complete business cycle, going back pre-recession to present day. Understanding these complex correlations, alongside current country and industry projections, provides a more accurate forecast by country, industry and machinery sector.

Full Description

Includes substantial detail on China
The China data provides a comprehensive historical view of the explosive growth of China’s manufacturing industry for the past 13 years as well as a trend-based forecast model for the next 5 years. It analyses 35 industries and 111 applications in China through highly detailed manufacturing surveys. The tracker also includes a quarterly overview of China’s manufacturing industry showing the latest key economic indicators and market trends.
