The capacity utilization rate fell in 9 of 21 industries in September, particularly in the petroleum and coal product (-4.1 percentage points) and transportation equipment (-3.1 percentage points) industries.

The decreases were partially offset by a higher capacity utilization rate in the primary metal (+5.7 percentage points) and fabricated metal product (+3.9 percentage points) industries.
