November 2017 was the 7th consecutive month of growth in UK manufacturing output, and the manufacturing index reached its highest point since February 2008. This coincides with the manufacturing sector's strongest run of growth since 1997.
One major factor in this growth has been a weak pound, making exports more competitive in the global market. Cars, renewable energy projects, marine and aerospace exports have all contributed to growth. It is also the first time that the US, China and Europe have been growing simultaneously since the recession.
