Manufacturing Production Index (MPI)

The Manufacturing Production Index (MPI) is a statistical measure that tracks the level of manufacturing activity in an economy. It is also known as the Industrial Production Index (IPI) or the Manufacturing Output Index (MOI).

The MPI measures the total output of goods produced by the manufacturing sector, and it is often used as a leading indicator of economic activity. A high MPI indicates that the manufacturing sector is producing a large amount of goods, which can be a sign of a growing economy. Conversely, a low MPI may indicate a slowdown in economic activity.

The MPI is calculated by taking the total value of goods produced by the manufacturing sector and dividing it by the total number of manufacturing firms. The result is then multiplied by 100 to create an index that can be easily tracked over time.

The MPI is used by policymakers, investors, and analysts to track the performance of the manufacturing sector and to make decisions about economic policy and investment. It is often considered to be one of the most important economic indicators, as the manufacturing sector can have a significant impact on the overall health of the economy.
