As table 19.15 shows, new capital expenditure by private sector businesses in the manufacturing industry rose slightly (by 2.6%) between 1998-99 and 1999-2000 following a fall of almost 15% between 1997-98 and 1998-99. Five of the nine manufacturing subdivisions experienced an increase in new capital expenditure. Largest percentage rises were for Wood and paper product manufacturing (by 26%), Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing (by 19%) and Machinery and equipment manufacturing (by 14%). Largest percentage falls were for Textile, clothing, footwear and leather manufacturing (by 26%) and Metal product manufacturing (by 24%).

Comparing private new capital expenditure levels in 1999-2000 with those of two years earlier shows lower levels in seven of the nine manufacturing subdivisions. Largest decreases were in Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (by 46%), Textile, clothing, footwear and leather manufacturing (by 26%), Machinery and equipment manufacturing (by 28%) and Other manufacturing (by 27%). The only increases were for Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing (by 13%) and Wood and paper product manufacturing (by 9%).
