Abstract:

This is the sector skills assessment for manufacturing. The aim of the report is to provide labour market intelligence (LMI) for the sector in order to inform the development of skills policy across the UK. Manufacturing remains a major strength of the UK economy, in spite of growing competition in the global market-place. In 2010, the UK sector delivered: over [GBP] 145 billion of added value to the economy; over 55 per cent of the UK’s exports; over 3 million jobs; and 74 per cent of business Research and Development (R and D). UK Manufacturing has well established strengths in industries such as pharmaceuticals, aerospace, automotive and electronics. The sector is responding to fierce international competition and is currently facing limited growth in both its domestic and many of its export markets. The report highlights a number of challenges for its business leaders for the future, including continuing lower measured productivity levels than for manufacturing in important competitor economies. SSAs combine top-down data from official sources with bottom-up sectoral intelligence to provide an understanding of the skills priorities within sectors across the four UK nations.
