Coal, Steel, Electricity, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Cement and Fertilizers record positive growth in September 2023 over September 2022

Index of Eight Core Industries (BASE: 2011-12=100) for September, 2023

Posted On: 31 OCT 2023 5:00PM by PIB Delhi

The combined Index of Eight Core Industries (ICI) increased by 8.1 per cent (provisional) in September 2023 as compared to the Index of September 2022. The production of Coal, Steel, Electricity, Natural Gas, Refinery Products, Cement and Fertilizers recorded positive growth in September 2023 over the corresponding month of last year. Details of annual and monthly indices and growth rates are provided below.

The ICI measures combined and individual performance of production of eight core industries viz. Cement, Coal, Crude Oil, Electricity, Fertilizers, Natural Gas, Refinery Products and Steel. The Eight Core Industries comprise 40.27 percent of the weight of items included in the Index of Industrial Production (IIP).

The final growth rate of Index of Eight Core Industries for June 2023 is revised to 8.4 per cent. The cumulative growth rate of ICI during April to September, 2023-24 is 7.8 per cent (provisional) as compared to the corresponding period of last year.

The summary of the Index of Eight Core Industries is given below:

Cement - Cement production (weight: 5.37 per cent) increased by 4.7 per cent in September, 2023 over September, 2022. Its cumulative index increased by 11.5 per cent during April to September, 2023-24 over corresponding period of the previous year.

Note 1: Data for July, 2023, August, 2023 and September, 2023 are provisional. Index numbers of Core Industries are revised/finalized as per updated data from source agencies.

Note 2: Since April 2014, Electricity generation data from Renewable sources are also included.

Note 3: The industry-wise weights indicated above are individual industry weights derived from IIP and blown up on pro rata basis to a combined weight of ICI equal to 100.

Note 4: Since March 2019, a new steel product called Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled (HRPO) under the item ‘Cold Rolled (CR) coils’ within the production of finished steel has also been included.

Note 5: Release of the index for October, 2023 will be on Thursday 30th November, 2023.
