This report presents the first estimate of the value of the stock of non-financial assets owned by households, corporations and General Government. Data are provided for the period 2005-2013, except for dwellings, whose value is published for 2001-2013. The value of the stock of consumer durables is provided, too, as a memorandum item.
In 2013 the total value of non-financial assets in Italy is EUR 9,644 billion.
In 2013 dwellings represent around 63% of the total stock of non-financial assets; other buildings and structures represent 26%. All the other non-financial assets, including intellectual property products, account for just over 9%. Land under cultivation represents around 3% of the total assets.
Around 90% of dwellings are owned by households. The value of the stock has almost doubled from 2001 to 2011; in the following two years its value decreased by 3.5%, owing to the decline in market prices.
Around 55% of non residential buildings are owned by non-financial corporations, 30% by producer households and 11% by General Government.
Around 75% of the other non-financial assets, including Intellectual property products, are owned by non- financial corporations, 14% by General Government and 11% by households.
90% of land under cultivation is owned by households.
The stock of consumer durables owned by households increased until 2011, then it declined by 0.5% in 2012 and by 2.5% in 2013, mainly driven by the fall in purchases of motor vehicles.
