Industrial Production Index (IPI). October 2016

12.05.2016

The IPI adjusted by working days (Base 2010=100) increased by 2.1% on a year-over-year basis in Catalonia in October 2016. By large industrial sectors, all sectors recorded increases except intermediate goods which remained stable (0.1%). Highlighted the increase in energy sector (12,0%) following by equipment sector (2.3%) and consumer goods (0.6%).

In this same period the index of industrial production (which does not include the energy and not adjusted by working days) decreased by 2.9% respect to the year before.

The Industrial Production Index is a short-term indicator that measures the monthly evolution in the volume of gross added value generated by industrial branches and by industry as a whole. It therefore measures the changes in industrial production without the price effect. Based on data from INE, Idescat makes a tabulation by major industrial sectors as well as by sections and divisions in the CCAE-2009. It also calculates the IPI corrected for calendar effects.
