Manufacturing Production y/y measures the change in the value of goods produced in the manufacturing sector of the UK industry in the given month compared to the same month of the previous year.

Manufacturing (production of foods, pharmaceuticals, light industry, metal processing, etc.) accounts for about 80% of the overall UK industrial production. The indicator is used to evaluate the national economy activity. A higher than expected reading is seen as positive for the pound sterling.
