Manufacturing Review - a report from Barclays - April 2006

The manufacturing sector remains a key component of the UK economy. Contrary to widespread perception, manufacturing output has actually risen over the longer term but because growth has lagged behind that of GDP, its share of economic activity has shrunk over the longer term.

The manufacturing sector accounted for about 14.5% of the UK economy (measured by gross value added) in 2004 and accounted for about 12.5% of employment. According to the annual business inquiry, there were 154,926 enterprises operating in the sector and the turnover of manufacturers amounted to 465 billion in 2004.
