After expenditure on goods and services was accounted for, this represented a total figure of £18,976 million in terms of approximate Gross Value Added (aGVA). aGVA, which is a measure of the value of economic activity generated by businesses, increased by 1.6% (£293 million) over the year.
- aGVA in the production sector has grown by 8.0% between 2012 and 2013, increasing from £5,333 million to £5,757 million. Turnover in the production sector grew by 4.3%, from £20,114 million in 2012 to £20,970 million in 2013.
- Movements in the production sector are driven primarily by the performance of the manufacturing section. The Manufacturing section’s aGVA grew by 11.3% in 2012 to £4,555 million and accounted for 79.1% of the production sector’s aGVA.
- Turnover and purchases in the services sector have both increased between 2012 and 2013, growing by 3.3% and 3.4% respectively. aGVA in the services sector has increased by 3.0%, from £6,489 million in 2012 to £6,685 million in 2013.
