Industry Results

Our leadership role in sustainable private sector development reflects a special advantage—the depth and breadth of expertise we have acquired over more than 50 years of helping emerging-market firms succeed and grow.

We provide our clients the right mix of capabilities to address their needs, delivering the best of what IFC has to offer.


The manufacturing sector plays a vital role in creating opportunity and reducing poverty in developing countries. IFC’s manufacturing clients tend to create or maintain more employment than those in any other sector. 

We have increased our activities in the sector, which includes construction materials, energy-efficient machinery, chemicals, and equipment for solar and wind power. We invest in companies that are developing new products and markets, and restructuring and modernizing to become internationally competitive. 

As these industries represent some of the most carbon-intensive sectors, we are helping clients develop and undertake investments that help reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption. 

In FY13, our new commitments in the manufacturing sector totaled $1.3 billion, or about 7 percent of commitments for IFC’s own account.
