The value of the stock of produced assets, which largely comprises buildings, transport equipment, other machinery and equipment, and research and development, has increased in value in 2016. Allowing for depreciation, the net stock of these assets increased by 7.0% between 2015 and 2016.

The graph in figure 1 displays the continuing increase in the net stock of fixed capital assets with current price level exceeding constant price level in 2016.

There have been revisions to net capital stocks and consumption of fixed capital in sector N (Administrative and Support Service Activities) in this release. These revisions are due to changes in the service life used for leased aircraft following consultation with the aircraft leasing sector.
