The base of the current growth is limited to the United States and China only, the world’s leading manufacturers. While the sustained growth of industrialized economies has been jeopardized by stagnation in Europe due to the austerity measures, developing and emerging industrial economies faced decline in external demand due to prolonged recession in industrialized economies.
The growth estimates are presented by manufacturing industry for both industrialized and developing and emerging industrial countries. Due to the economic recession, which has caused significant job losses and a drop in income, demand for capital goods and durable items for household consumption fell worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.
