The production of $\Upsilon(nS)$ mesons ($n=1,2,3$) in $p$Pb and Pb$p$ collisions at a centreofmass energy per nucleon pair $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=8.16$ TeV is measured by the LHCb experiment, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 31.8 nb$^{1}$. The $\Upsilon(nS)$ mesons are reconstructed through their decays into two oppositesign muons. The measurements comprise the differential production crosssections of the $\Upsilon(1S)$ and $\Upsilon(2S)$ states, their forwardtobackward ratios and nuclear modification factors, performed as a function of the transverse momentum \pt and rapidity in the nucleonnucleon centreofmass frame $y^*$ of the $\Upsilon(nS)$ states, in the kinematic range $p_{\rm{T}}<25$ GeV/$c$ and $1.5<y^*<4.0$ ($5.0<y^*<2.5$) for $p$Pb (Pb$p$) collisions. In addition, production crosssections for $\Upsilon(3S)$ are measured integrated over phase space and the production ratios between all three $\Upsilon(nS)$ states are determined. The measurements are compared to theoretical predictions and suppressions for quarkonium in $p$Pb collisions are observed.
