The article presents efficiency and labour productivity analysis of Polish metal industry in 2010-2016. 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. The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate changes in the productivity of the metallurgical industry in Poland and to compare the efficiency of 12 branch manufacturing metal products. Meanwhile, the highest average index of changes in MPI during the period was achieved by manufacture of basic precious and other non-ferrous metals and manufacture of structural metal products.Keywords: Metallurgy, productivity, Malmquist Productivity Index
