Key Industry Statistics

CPI produces in-depth industry statistics for its Members, and contributes to European and global databases

This material is also used to inform CPI’s lobbying activities, demonstrating the points being made to government, and promoting the industry’s achievements.

Regular data is provided on such topics as production and sales, stocks and raw materials supplies. Each of CPI’s Sectors can commission bespoke data collection and analyses pertinent to their particular interests and all Sectors receive comprehensive reports on their Health & Safety performance.

An annual overview of the industry’s current and historic performance is published as Facts & Figures, widely distributed alongside the Annual Review.
