Index of Industrial Production (IIP)

Overall Growth

Mining Growth

The Index of Industrial Production (IIP) reflects the growth of core industrial sectors in an economy. The IIP is a composite indicator that measures the short-term changes in the volume of production of a basket of industrial products during a given period. It essentially takes a basket of industrial products and creates an index by assigning different weights to different products. Growth in industrial production is determined by comparing the monthly values of this index with the index value in the same month last year. This rate of growth (positive or negative) in IIP signals India’s industrial health or the lack of it.

The IIP is the weighted-average of 3 indexes - Mining (14.4%), Manufacturing (77.6%) and Electricity (8%). In addition, the IIP also constitutes 6 use-based weighted-average indexes - Primary Goods (34%), Capital Goods (8.2%), Intermediate Goods (17.2%), Infrastructure/Construction Goods (12.3%), Consumer Durables (12.8%), Consumer Non-Durables (15.3%).

Eight core Industries (Coal, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Fertilizers, Steel, Cement and Electricity) comprise 40.27% of the weight of the items included in IIP which is tracked through the Index of Infrastructure Output. Some sectors may outperform others due to a variety of reasons, such as growth prospects, position in the business cycle, government policy, international factors, etc.

IIP is a short-term measure of industrial growth till the outcomes from Annual Survey of Industries (ASI) and National Accounts Statistics such as GDP are available. It is compiled and published monthly by the National Statistical Office, Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) six weeks after the reference month ends.

The Base Year for the IIP is 2011-12 with a value of 100. So if the index for mining in Mar'20 is say 132.7, it implies that compared to 2011-12 index value of 100, mining has performed at a growth rate of 32.7% in 8 years.

SECTORAL

The IIP is the weighted-average of 3 indexes - manufacturing, mining and electricity. The relative weight of these in the Index are manufacturing (77.6%), mining (14.4%), and electricity (8%).

The sector composition is one of the ways to classify the products in IIP, under which a basket of products is grouped under manufacturing, mining and electricity - the other being a use-based classification.
