1) The data were summed from the PRODCOM classification to less detailed levels. Detailed commodity-specific data can be found in the StatFin statistical database.

The share of metal industry products of the total value of the sold output was 45 per cent, or EUR 38.1 billion, of which the sales of machinery and equipment covered nearly one half, EUR 18.4 billion. The share of chemical industry products of the total value of the sold output was 19 per cent, that of forest industry products 17 per cent and that of food products 11 per cent.

The value of sold output fell in nearly all product groups. The value of the sold output contracted most in chemical industry (-20%) and forest industry products (-15%). The decline in the value of the sold output of metal industry products was more moderate (-6%), where the value of the sold output of transport equipment dropped by 17 per cent, that of machinery and equipment by six per cent, and that of metals and metal products fell by two per cent. The value of the sold output of food remained on level with the previous year.

The value of sold output grew for both mining and quarrying (+4%) and textiles, clothing, leather and leather products (+7%). However, these product groups account for a small proportion of the total value of sold output, mining and quarrying products account for two per cent, and textiles, clothing, leather and leather products for less than one per cent of total sold output.

Commodities are broken down into more specific subcategories in Appendix table 1. More detailed level commodity-specific data on the value and volume of sold domestic output and data on the volume of total output are published in the StatFin statistical database .

The data in the statistics on industrial output for 2020 were updated in the StatFin statistical service on 1 July 2021. The database table of the statistics contains data on the value and volume of sold domestic output by commodity heading as well as data on the volume of total domestic output for 2013 to 2020. Annual data for earlier years can be found in the archives of the StatFin statistical service . The service has data available from 1998 onwards. The data have been collected annually from enterprises and establishments in the industries of mining and quarrying (industry B) and manufacturing (industry C).
