Abstract

The article presents efficiency and labour productivity analysis of Polish metal industry in 2010-2014. The main purpose of this paper is to compare the efficiency of 12 branch manufacturing metal products in Poland. The study applies the Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI), which was used to analyze changes in metal industry productivity. The study indicated which factor - technological progress or changes in technical efficiency had a greater impact on the change in productivity of metal industry in Poland. Meanwhile, the highest average index of changes in MPI during the period was achieved by manufacture of basic iron and steel and of ferroalloys and manufacture of basic precious and other non-ferrous metals.

Keywords: Efficiency, labour productivity, metal industry, Malmquist Productivity Index
