The most crucial level of EFB’s analytical output, coverage of industries adopts a data-centred approach to key industrial value chains to derive novel and meaningful insights for business. For now, this analysis focuses on five key value chains that account for almost 50% of world output and a similar share of global emissions. In no particular order, these value chains are food, energy, tourism, construction & real estate (property) and health. More industries are expected to be added soon. Highlights of EFB’s industry analysis include:

  • For each industry, a broad look at the value-added chain of production from inputs to processing and outputs
  • A focus on indicators of output, employment, trade and investment, similar to EFB’s macroeconomic analysis, as well as a review of industry-specific data related to market structure
  • An optional focus on industry-specific sustainability indicators and developments is available for purchase with most subscriptions
