Map of China

Update May 2nd, 2018 - In 2017 industrial production grew by 6.0% compared to the previous year according to the National Bureau of Statistics of China

 

We put these growth rates in the long-term context of industrial production1 since the year 2000.

 

The index of industrial production increased continuously and dynamically in the years from 2000 to 2011, i.e. with higher growth rates.

The index of the industrial production in China from 2000 to 2017.

Slowing growth of industrial production since 2012

We now consider the years since the beginning of the world economic crisis:

  • 2008 to 2009 +  8.6 index points
  • 2009 to 2010 +13.6 index points
  • 2010 to 2011 +13.9 index points.

 

Since 2012 the index of industrial production has been rising with declining values:

 

  • 2011 to 2012 +12.5 index points
  • 2012 to 2013 +12.2 index points
  • 2013 to 2014 +11.5 index points
  • 2014 to 2015 +  9.1 index points
  • 2015 to 2016 +  9.6 index points
  • 2016 to 2017 +11.1 index points.

 

So the growth of industrial production has been softening since 2012.
