  • Value of Production Index post a two-digit growth rate in March 2017

Value of Production Index (VaPI) for manufacturing significantly rose to 12.2 percent in March 2017 compared with the 0.8 percent growth during the same month of the previous year, according to the preliminary results of the Monthly Integrated Survey of Selected Industries (MISSI). This was attributed to the increases in VaPI observed in  12 major sectors and influenced by the heavily weighted sector of petroleum products, with 94.9 percent growth. The other eight major sectors with two-digit growth were: transport equipment (54.8%), leather products (22.2%), food manufacturing (20.0%), machinery except electrical (19.2%), miscellaneous manufactures (15.9%), fabricated metal products (15.1%), footwear and wearing apparel (13.0%) and non-metallic mineral products (10.3%).  Refer to Tables 1-A and 1.

 

  • Volume of Production Index gains further

Volume of Production Index (VoPI) continued to increase, registering at 11.1 percent in March 2017. The increase was brought about by the expansion in VoPI for the eight major sectors led by fabricated metal products, with an increase of 74.4 percent. Other seven sectors with significant increase in VoPI were the following: petroleum products (61.5%), transport equipment (54.5%), leather products (39.2%), food manufacturing (23.4%), machinery except electrical (17.9%), non-metallic mineral products (15.7%), and footwear and wearing apparel (10.3%). Refer to Tables 1-B and 2.

 

 

 

  • Value of Net Sales Index rebounds

Value of Net Sales Index (VaNSI) bounced back in March 2017 as it posted a two-digit increase of 20.9 percent from a negative 3.7 percent during the same month of the previous year. Of the 16 major sectors that reflected increases in VaNSI, 11 sectors exhibited significant growth led by machinery except electrical, with three-digit growth of 105.6 percent. Other 10 major sectors with two-digit increases were reported by the following: transport equipment (84.8%), basic metals (65.3%), paper and paper products (42.8%), textiles (35.9%), printing (34.5%), petroleum products (27.2%), electrical machinery (22.2%), miscellaneous manufactures (16.9%), wood and wood products (16.6%) and fabricated metal products (16.0%) . Refer to Tables 2-A and 3.

 

  • Volume of Net Sales Index liksewise accelerates

Volume of Net Sales Index (VoNSI) continued to gain as it posted a year-on-year growth of 19.6 percent  in March 2017. The major contributing factor was the increase in VoNSI exhibited by 17 major sectors, with significant expansion observed in machinery except electrical that posted a three-digit growth of 103.3 percent. This was followed by other 10 major sectors that posted two-digit increments, namely: transport equipment (84.5%), fabricated metal products (75.9%), basic metals (63.2%), paper and paper products (44.9%), textiles (43.2%), printing (30.4%), electrical machinery (23.2%), rubber and plastic products (16.3%), leather products (14.8%), and wood and wood products (14.7%). Refer to Tables 2-B and 4.

 

 

  • Average Capacity Utilization Rate in March 2017 is 83.8 percent with petroleum products posting the highest among industries

Average capacity utilization rate in March 2017 for total manufacturing was recorded at 83.8 percent. Fifty-five percent or 11 of the 20 major industries operated at 80 percent and above capacity utilization rates. These were:

  • petroleum products (88.9%)
  • basic metals (88.5%)
  • non-metallic mineral products (86.6%)
  • machinery except electrical (85.5%)
  • food manufacturing (85.2%)
  • electrical machinery (84.6%)
  • chemical products (84.0%)
  • paper and paper products (83.5%)
  • rubber and plastic products (83.0%)
  • wood and wood products (80.9%)
  • printing (80.3%)

 

The proportion of establishments that operated at full capacity (90% to 100%) was recorded almost one-fourth of the total number of establishments (24.3%) in March 2017. About 56.8 percent of the total establishments operated at 70 percent to 89 percent capacity while 18.9 percent of the total establishments operated below 70 percent capacity. Refer to Table B and 6.
