The British Manufacturing Barometer

By John Pearce

Access the first-ever British Manufacturing Barometer here.  The report is published at an important time and shares UK manufacturing companies’ current views and voices on the Economy and Industry. We will publish a second later in the year, focused on the Environment and Society.

Made in Britain is a business-led, independent trade body that represents, promotes and supports UK manufacturers, led by the licensed use of the official Made in Britain trademark, registered with the UK Intellectual Property Office across 30 product classes.

Now with more than 2,000 UK manufacturing companies as members, of which 95% are SMEs, Made in Britain continues to grow. As we do so, it is our responsibility to increasingly share the views and voices of our members. Not only to continue to promote Made in Britain and the fantastic companies that are part of our community – but also a commitment to the sector as a whole and all UK manufacturers.

While all data and insights come from Made in Britain members, this Barometer is intended to be representative of UK manufacturing as a sector.  Thank you again to all the companies that directly contributed.  

The Made in Britain Barometer is separate to, but coordinated with Made in Britain’s Buying British and Export Surveys. Reference to each of those is in the report, including that 8 in 10 UK companies now recognise the Made in Britain trademark, and Europe continues to be the most popular export market for UK manufacturers. Please contact us for more on either of those surveys.

Lastly, Made in Britain is keen to develop and evolve the Barometer. This first version is being published ahead of an imminent general election.  The second will be weeks in to the new Parliament.  Whether you are a manufacturer, politician, policy-maker, journalist, academic or sector stakeholder – if you are reading this and want to know more, or may be interested to get involved with future versions, please do get in touch with us via
