The recently released index of industrial production (IIP) data showed that consumer goods, particularly durables, performed poorly in 2022-23 year-on-year. The performance of consumer durables becomes worse if one compares their output in FY23 to that of pre-Covid years.
Though the output index of consumer durables was up just 0.5 per cent in 2022-23 compared to 3.2 per cent in the previous year, it contracted almost four per cent compared to the pre-Covid year of 2019-20.
This was despite the fact that consumer durables had declined 8.7 per cent in 2019-20. If we go back a year earlier, consumer durables production fell 12 per cent in 2022-23 over 2018-19.
