NEW YORK (Reuters) - The manufacturing sector is forecast to continue to grow this year, with both revenue and investment seen increasing, an industry report showed on Tuesday.

Manufacturing revenue is expected to increase 4.8 percent in 2013 from the year before, the semi-annual forecast from The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said.

Revenue in the non-manufacturing sector, which is made up mostly of service sector businesses, is expected to gain by 3.5 percent.

Capital investment among manufacturing firms is seen jumping 9.1 percent this year, and increasing by 3.5 percent in the service sector.

The projections are issued by ISM’s Business Survey Committee.
