This study investigates the impact of the energy crisis on manufactured exports of Pakistan for the time period of 1990 to 2019 by employing the Ordinary Least Square method. Manufactured export is the regressand while energy crisis, energy price, real exchange rate, foreign demand, and industrial output are the regressors. The econometric analysis shows a significant negative relationship between manufactured exports and energy crisis, energy price, and exchange rate whereas a significant positive relationship has been found among manufactured exports and industrial output as well as foreign demand. The findings of this study call for such policy recommendations that can effectively tackle the issue of poor manufactured export performance in the light of the energy crisis. The government should take immediate initiatives to generate more energy to increase domestic production and to serve export purposes. Efficient energy policies should be formed, and innovative measures should be introduced for energy conservation.
