Additional details
The additional details of some variables in the previous parts of this table are being given in this section.
Gross fixed capital formation
Expenditure on produced assets that are used in a production process for more than one year. This may concern a building, dwelling, transport equipment or a machine. This in contrast with goods and services which are used up during the production process, the so-called intermediate use (e.g. iron ore). Fixed capital does lose value over time as a result of normal wear and tear and obsolescence. This is called consumption of fixed capital (also called depreciation). The value of fixed capital formation in which the consumption of fixed capital is not deducted is called gross fixed capital formation. Deduction of the consumption of fixed capital results in net fixed capital formation.

The following types of fixed assets exist: dwellings and other buildings and structures, machinery and equipment, transport equipment, weapon systems (included in machinery and equipment), computers, software, telecommunication equipment, research and development, cultivated biological resources, mineral exploration and evaluation, and costs of ownership transfer on non-produced assets, like land, contracts, leases and licenses.

By type of fixed assets

Fixed assets from production and imports
Fixed assets from production and imports.
ICT equipment
Information and communication technologies (ICT) equipment: devices using electronic controls and the electronic components used in the devices. Examples are electronic equipment and boards and computers and peripheral equipment.
Data processing and electronic devices that are programmable by the user. This category includes peripheral equipment such as terminals and printers.
Intellectual property products
Fixed assets that consist of the results of research and development, mineral exploration and evaluation, computer software and databases, entertainment, literary or artistic originals and other intellectual property products, as defined below, intended to be used for more than one year.
Computer software and databases
Computer programs, program descriptions and supporting materials for both systems and applications software. Included are the initial development and subsequent extensions of software as well as acquisition of copies that are classified as computer software assets.

Files of data organized to permit resource-effective access and use of the data. For databases created exclusively for own use the valuation is estimated by costs.
