Manufacturing is playing a crucial role in Kenya’s inclusive growth by absorbing large numbers of workers, and creating many jobs indirectly through forward and backward linkages to agriculture, raising exports and transforming the economy through technological innovation.

According to Kenya Association of Manufacturers (2017), in any given year the sector contributes between 10% and 11% to Kenya’s domestic product, standing at more than 62 Billion US Dollars.

It is no wonder employment is doing well in this sector.

Data Fintech, a Kenyan data broker, reports that there has been an average of 102 jobs created in the sector every month between January and July 2017. 70% of the jobs creation are in Engineering/Mechanics. In addition to this positive trend, the sector is creating more high wage jobs, with a median salary surging by 47.29% in July 2017 for the Engineering/Mechanics jobs.

The study has been realized by Data Fintech, based on data collected on various online recruitment platforms in Kenya.
