Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturing accounts for nearly 24% of the Philippines’ total GDP, boasting a larger national income than agriculture, fishing, and forestry combined. Manufactured goods also comprise 90% of Philippine exports. Some of which include furniture and fixtures, transport equipment, petroleum products, miscellaneous manufactures, electrical machinery, leather products, beverages, paper and paper products, basic metal, fabricated metal products, non-metallic mineral products, rubber and plastic products, textiles, and many more.  We are now seeing more companies leave China and Vietnam to set up manufacturing operations all throughout the Philippines, many of which are registering with PEZA.

Manufacturing Zones

The bulk of the Philippine manufacturing industry is concentrated in Manila. The city is the main entry point for raw materials and other kinds of goods. Manila also boasts a large local market, competitive labor force, and some of the biggest financial institutions in the country. The city’s manufacturing industry comprises more than half of the total manufacturing employment in the country. Other important manufacturing zones include Northern Mindanao (around Iligan), Cagayan de Oro, Cebu City, and Davao.
