The changes in the contribution of the manufacturing to national GDP (Manufacturing Value Added (MVA) as a share of GDP (%)) are analyzed on the example of the 50 leading countries by industrial output since the beginning of the XXI century. Th e paper is aimed at determining new trends in the global economic landscape basing on the obtained data. Th erefore, three groups of countries by the share of MVA to GDP are singled out: de-industrialized (USA, Great Britain, etc.); adherents of traditional industrial specialization with practically unchanged share of the manufacturing sector in the economy over 2004-2021 (Japan, Germany, Switzerland); and countries with sharply increased industrial growth over the past two decades (Turkey, Bangladesh, Iran). Th ere is an undeniable correlation between the presence of industrial base and overall economic growth. Of the 28 countries that achieved double-digit annual GDP growth in 2021, 5 are in the top 50 of the world industrial ranking. 17 leading industrial countries outperformed the global average GDP growth rate in 2021, and many countries achieved their best results in recent years. For example, Russia’s GDP growth (4.7%) was the highest since 2008, and Saudi Arabia’s (3.2%) since 2015. Based on the fi ndings, possible adjustments in Russia’s industrial policy under sanctions are suggested.

New forms of employment and methods of labour activity are emerging in the world economy under the infl uence of scientifi c and technological progress. The demand for relatively new forms of labour contributes to changes in the nature of new industries, leads to structural shift s in the economy. The expansion of asset sharing in the modern economy is one of these trends. Experts have calculated that it is more profi table to borrow an idle asset for temporary use than to buy it. The markets for vehicles, hotel rooms, offi ce space, tourist accommodation booking services have embraced the trend most extensively. Th e demand for temporarily idle assets has captured both industrialized and developing countries. The process under consideration leads to an increase in the economic eff ect of empty offi ces, parked vehicles, unused types of equipment and appliances in any country’s economy. The expansion of the practice of asset sharing could objectively result in higher effi ciency of social production and acceleration of economic growth.
