Manufacturing is the largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2007, global manufacturing industries accounted for about 40% of total CO2 emissions. As a result, carbon management and reduction have become serious issues for manufacturers in practically every country around the world.

The economy of The Republic of India with an estimated GDP growth of 5% [ 13 ] is the tenth-largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). [ 1 ] The country is one of the G-20 major economies and a member of BRICS . On a per capita income basis, India ranked 140th by nominal GDP and 129th by GDP (PPP) in 2011, according to the IMF . [ 14 ] India is the nineteenth largest exporter and tenth largest importer in the world. Economic growth rate slowed to around 5.3% for the 2012–13 fiscal year. [ 15 ] The independence-era Indian economy (from 1947 to 1991) was based on a mixed economy combining features of capitalism and socialism, resulting in an inward-looking, interventionist policies and import-substituting economy that failed to take advantage of the post-war expansion of trade. [ 16 ] This model contributed to widespread inefficiencies and corruption, and the failings of this system were due largely to its poor implementation. [ 16 ]
This is a list of countries by Gross Domestic Product (GDP) sector composition based on nominal GDP and GDP (PPP) estimates and sector composition ratios provided by the CIA World Fact Book at market or government official exchange rates with figures in trillions of United States dollars . Agricultural sector Agriculture (a term which encompasses farming ) is the process of producing food, feed , fiber and other goods by the systematic raising of plants and animals. Agricultural output is a component of the GDP of a nation. Industrial sector Industry is the segment of economy concerned with production of goods (including fuels and fertilisers ).
China continues to grow manufacturing is output. In 2009, the USA, and most countries saw declines in manufacturing production. China, however, continued to grow. China is now finally approaching the level of manufacturing done in USA. The latest data again shows the USA is the largest manufacturer but China looks poised to take over the number one spot soon. The chart showing manufacturing output by country was created by the Curious Cat Economics Blog based on UN data (in 2009 USA dollars).
Comprehensive National Power ( CNP ) ( Chinese : 综合国力 ; pinyin : zōnghé guólì) is a putative measure, important in the contemporary political thought of the People's Republic of China , of the general power of a nation-state . CNP can be calculated numerically by combining various quantitative indices to create a single number held to measure the power of a nation-state. [ citation needed ] These indices take into account both military factors (known as hard power ) and economic and cultural factors (known as soft power ). CNP is notable for being an original Chinese political concept with no roots in either contemporary Western political theory, Marxism-Leninism , or pre-20th century Chinese thinking. There is a general consensus that the United States is the nation with the highest CNP and that mainland China 's CNP ranks not only far behind the United States but also behind the United Kingdom , Russia , France and Germany .

The world's top manufacturing country is the United States, and this has been the case since before World War II. In 2007, the United States' manufacturing output was $1.831 trillion US Dollars (USD). This is about 12% of the USA's entire gross domestic product ( GDP ), or $12,206 USD for every person in the 150 million-strong labor force . Still, the USA's output per capita is not the world's greatest — that honor goes to Japan.

This article includes a list of China's historical gross domestic product (GDP) values , the market value of all final goods and services produced by a nation in a given year. The GDP dollar estimates presented here are either calculated at market or government official exchange rates (nominal), or derived from purchasing power parity (PPP) calculations. This article also includes historical GDP growth . In 1985, the State Council of China ( SCC ) approved to establish a SNA (System of National Accounting), use the GDP to measure the national economy. China started the study of theoretical foundation, guiding, and accounting model etc., for establishing a new system of national economic accounting. In 1986, as the first citizen of the People's Republic of China to receive a Ph.D. in economics from an overseas country, Dr.
This article includes three lists of countries of the world sorted by their gross domestic product (GDP) (the value of all final goods and services produced within a state in a given year). The GDP dollar estimates given on this page are derived from purchasing power parity (PPP) calculations. [ edit ] Background Using a PPP basis is arguably more useful when comparing generalized differences in total economic output between countries because PPP takes into account the relative costs and the inflation rates of the countries, rather than using just exchange rates which may distort the real differences in income. Economies do self-adjust to currency changes over time, and technology intensive and luxury goods, raw materials and energy prices are mostly unaffected by difference in currency (the latter more by subsidies), however this is taken into account by the price comparison surveys, such as the International Comparison Program, which are used as the basis for PPP calculations.
