Make UK/BDO Manufacturing Outlook Report Q2


Welcome to the latest edition of Manufacturing Outlook, BDO’s quarterly report with Make UK, providing the most up-to-date and detailed intelligence on the state of UK manufacturing.

After a positive start to the year, the latest figures indicate that the sector’s growth has continued this quarter. Although the sector remains below its pre-pandemic level, increased confidence is sweeping across UK manufacturing. Output growth is forecast to outpace the economy overall as manufacturers benefit from a sharper than expected bounce back in both UK and export orders.

Against a backdrop of challenges – supply chain disruptions, shortages of key materials, rising inflation and logistical costs – in this edition, BDO and Make UK explore manufacturers’ confidence in their business and the wider economy as well as manufacturing output, orders, investment and employment intentions.
