INDEXGDPL2020-17Supply and use tables provide a detailed picture of the supply of goods and services by domestic production and imports and the use of goods and services for intermediate consumption and fi nal use (consumption, gross capital formation, exports). They are compiled for 216 products and 95 industries. For publication purposes, a higher level of aggregation was chosen due to confi dentiality obligations. The tables are presented at NACE section level, in which industries (and products) are grouped in 19 categories (Annex 1). The supply table (Table 1) shows the source of the total value of the supply of goods and services at purchasers’ prices, by product, in the Maltese economy. In 2015, the share of domestic production in total supply stood at 62.9 per cent, of which 11.5 percentage points were goods (Products A to F), whereas 51.3 percentage points were services (Products G to U). The share of imports was 34.5 per cent, while the share of net taxes (taxes less subsidies on products) stood at 2.6 per cent. Chart 1 provides further detail on the shares of domestic production and imports in total supply for each product.

The use table (Table 2) shows how the supply of each product was used in the economy across the major types of use identifi ed in national accounting. These use categories are intermediate consumption, fi nal consumption of households, Non-Profi t Institutions Serving Households (NPISH) and general government, gross capital formation and exports. Chart 2 shows the composition of each type of use by type of product.

The supply of Agricultural, forestry and fi shing products (Product A) is mostly used as intermediate costs of locally produced goods and services (37.6 per cent), with the next most important uses being exports (30.4 per cent) and fi nal consumption (29.8 per cent). The use of these products in gross capital formation is limited (2.2 per cent). The main use of the supply of industrial products (Products B to F) is also intermediate consumption (38.9 per cent) with the rest spread between fi nal consumption (22.4 per cent), exports (22.0 per cent) and gross capital formation, (16.7 per cent). Again, the supply of services (Products G to U) are used mostly as intermediate consumption (43.3 per cent) but this is closely followed by exports (38.8 per cent). The next most important use of these products is fi nal consumption (16.3 per cent), while gross capital formation plays a limited role (1.6 per cent). Chart 3 shows the import content by type of use. Imports intended for intermediate consumption account for 62.9 per cent of this type of use. Imports used as gross capital formation and fi nal consumption stand at 46.1 per cent and 14.9 per cent of these uses, respectively. Finally, imports which have been re-exported without transformation make up 6.7 per cent of total exports.
