The manufacturing sector is significant to economic development. In considering the Nigeria economic development experiences, this study is an insight on how manufacturing sector can influence Nigeria’s economic growth by facilitating the transfer of technology and other associated benefits. The objectives of the study were to determine the impact of manufacturing sector on Nigeria’s economic growth; and to investigate the major constraints confronting the Nigerian manufacturing sector. Data for the study was obtained from secondary sources, and the technique used in this research was the ordinary square regression method. The endogenous growth model was adopted as the theoretical framework of analysis. The study found out that industrial output is not statistically significant in terms of its influence on economic growth. Recommendations were made that; Government must ensure political stability and also invest in the people, since high economic performance is a function of the people working in the country (Capacity Development); Government should pursue favorable policy framework and provide necessary infrastructures and create an enabling environment that will foster huge investment in research and development.
