Show all indicators of Information industries


Final demand for information industry products, as a percentage of total final demand. This indicator shows the relative importance of final products from information industries.

Final demand refers to the consumption of final goods and services by households and government, as well as investment by businesses. Information industries’ final products for household consumption include computers, mobile phone services and audiovisual services. For businesses, ICT hardware and software are the principle investment products.

Information industries include manufacturers of ICT equipment, providers of ICT services and the “content and media sector”. They are approximated, due to the limited availability of more detailed data, by “Computer, electronic and optical products”, “Publishing, audiovisual, and broadcasting activities”, “Telecommunications”, and “IT and other information services” (see notes).
