  • Value of Production Index posts lower growth

    Value of Production Index (VaPI) for the manufacturing industry on a year-on-year basis registered an increase of 5.1 percent in February 2006 compared with the year-ago figure, according to the preliminary results of the Monthly Integrated Survey of Selected Industries (MISSI). Major sectors that contributed to the growth were the following: petroleum products, furniture and fixtures, fabricated metal products, basic metals, textiles and beverages. Refer to Tables 1-A and 1.

    On the other hand, VaPI on a month-on-month basis decelerated by 3.0 percent in February 2006. Significant decreases were reported by the following sectors: tobacco, publishing and printing, electrical machinery and rubber products. Refer to Tables 1-A and 1.

Volume of Production Index (VoPI) continues its downtrend

Volume of Production Index (VoPI) on a yearly basis dipped further by 11.8 percent due to poor factory performance in the following sectors: wood and wood products, leather products, machinery excluding electrical, electrical machinery, publishing and printing, footwear and wearing apparel, tobacco, non-metallic mineral products, chemical products and transport equipment. Refer to Tables 2 and 1-B.

On a monthly basis, VoPI slightly declined by 2.2 percent in February 2006 from a drop of 18.6 percent in the previous month. Sectors that mainly influence the slacked performance in production were the following: tobacco, publishing and printing and rubber products. Refer to Tables 2 and 1-B.

 

 

 

  • Value of Net Sales maintains two-digit growth

    Value of Net Sales in February 2006 posted a two-digit growth of 12.6 percent compared to its year-ago figure. This was brought about by the improved sales performance of six (6) major sectors, led by tobacco with 112.0 percent increase. Other sectors that reported double-digit increases were the following: petroleum products, food manufacturing, basic metals, publishing and printing and rubber products. Refer to Tables 2-A and 3.

    Value of Net Sales on a monthly basis, however, decreased by 1.6 percent in February 2006. Major sectors that contributed to the decline were the following: publishing and printing, wood and wood products and non-metallic mineral products. Refer to Tables 2-A and 3.

  • Volume of Net Sales posts lower growth

    Volume of Net Sales on a yearly basis registered a slight growth of 0.7 percent in February 2006. Though four (4) major sectors posted two-digit increases, this was offset by the two-digit decreases in seven (7) major sectors. Refer to Tables 2-B and 4.

    Net Sales on a monthly basis slipped by 0.8 percent in February 2006. Four (4) major sectors posted two-digit decreases, as follows: publishing and printing, non-metallic mineral products, wood and wood products and petroleum products. Refer to Tables 2-B and 4.

  •  

  • Producer?s Price Index (PPI) maintains two-digit growth

    Producer?s Price Index (PPI) for manufacturing maintained its double-digit year-on-year growth of 19.1 percent in February 2006. Seventeen (17) of the 20 major sectors registered price increases, led by electrical machinery with an increase of 88.9 percent. Other sectors that reported double-digit increases were machinery excluding electrical, leather products, petroleum products, non-metallic mineral products and footwear and wearing apparel. Refer to Table 5.

    On a month-on-month basis, PPI exhibited a slight decrease of 0.9 percent in February 2006. Price increases by the thirteen (13) major sectors were offset by the price decreases reported by the seven (7) major sectors. Refer to Table 5.

     

  • Capacity Utilization

    Average capacity utilization in February 2006 for total manufacturing was estimated at 80.0 percent. Sectors that registered more than 80% capacity utilization rates were the following: machinery excluding electrical, petroleum products, paper and paper products, electrical machinery, miscellaneous manufactures, basic metals, rubber products, leather products, food manufacturing, chemical products and textiles. Refer to Table 6..

    The proportion of establishments that operated at full capacity (90%-100%) was 9.9 percent in February 2006. More than half or 57.5 percent of the establishments operated at 70%-89% capacity and 32.6 percent of the establishments operated below 70% capacity.

    70 percent - 79 percent 20.1
    80 percent - 89 percent 37.4
    90 percent - 100 percent 9.9

  • Response Rate

    The response rate for February 2006 is 88.4 percent, which corresponds to the retrieval of 451 sample establishments' reports. Refer to Table 7.

  • Technical Notes

    Starting 2006, weights for the Producer?s Price Index (PPI) are based from the results of the 2003 Annual Survey of Philippine Business and Industry (ASPBI) for manufacturing establishments with average total employment (ATE) of 20 and over..

    Data of non-responding sample establishments are estimated based on previous records and other available sources. Revisions to the preliminary estimates are done upon receipt of actual reports of late respondents.
