Global industrial production up 3.6% in July, supported by strong factor output; production up 3.2% after 7M

September 20, 2017 | Articles

World industrial activity continues to trend upwards, growing 3.6% year-over-year in July. Industrial production is up 3.2% after seven months, well above the 1.6% rate of growth recorded in 2016. Underlying the improvement in industrial production is stronger demand for manufactured goods, which is also contributing to higher merchandise trade flows. World manufacturing production was up 3.5% through July, with sturdy rates of growth recorded in most large economies. Perhaps the one major exception is the United States, where the pickup in activity primarily reflects a rebound in mining output (+5.6% year-to-date).

Global manufacturing grew 3.7% in the second quarter, the strongest quarterly increase since Q1/2014. Production volumes are now exceeding long-term fundamentals, as evidenced by an increasingly positive output gap (+0.6%).
