Share of imported products in intermediate consumption good one-fourth in 2010

According to the data in the supply and use tables for 2010, the share of imported products of the basic price value of intermediate consumption was 26.9 per cent in 2010. The higher share of imports in intermediate consumption compared to other use categories is mainly caused by the large share of imported goods in intermediate consumption of the manufacturing industries. In final consumption items, the share of imported products in fixed capital formation of the basic price value was 14.9 per cent. The corresponding share in consumption expenditure was 10.5 per cent. The high domestic content in consumption expenditure is explained by the large share of domestic services.

The basic price value does not include taxes on products linked to intermediate and final consumption, but does include the subsidies on products paid to producers of goods and services.

The intermediate and final consumption of products produced in Finland and products imported from abroad is described in the use tables of domestic output and imports at basic prices. Intermediate consumption consists of the value of goods and services consumed as input in production processes, excluding fixed assets (gross fixed capital formation), whose consumption is recorded as consumption of fixed capital. Final consumption consists of domestic final consumption of goods and services, i.e. consumption expenditure (household consumption expenditure + consumption expenditure of non-profit institutions + general government consumption expenditure) and fixed capital formation (gross fixed capital formation + change in inventories), as well as the exports of goods and services.

Statistics Finland publishes annually the supply and use tables describing product flows in the national economy, and the input-output and analysis tables derived from them. The data published now concern the year 2010. Tables concerning 2011 will be published in December 2013.
