According to a report by the African National Bank of Development, the Ivorian industrial sector is the most efficient in West Africa.

The industry sector, which represents 59% of imports, 8% of jobs in 2016 and 25% of gross domestic product (GDP), is divided into several branches.

After emerging from the socio-political crisis of 2011, the government set up mechanisms to promote the contribution of the industrial sector to the creation of wealth and jobs.

This sector represents 25.2% of the Gross Domestic Product in 2018 and 26% in 2019. Its contribution to the growth of the Ivorian economy increased from 1.5 points in 2018 to 2.1 points in 2019.

On the other hand, it includes a large number of Small and Medium Industries (SMI) and few large industries (dominated by agro-industry).
