VACA SERRANO, Jaime Mario Edmundo; KIDO CRUZ, Antonio  and  NUNEZ RODRIGUEZ, Gaspar. Electricity industry and its relevance in the economic structure of Mexico. Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.58, pp.825-851. ISSN 2448-6183.

The implementation of the wholesale electricity market aims to promote private investment, give confidence and clarity, and achieve competitive prices. It is, then, transcendental to know its relevance and potential impact on the economic structure. In this paper the most recent input-output matrix of Mexico and structural analysis was used for accomplishing our goal. The main results show that electricity is a key industry and its main supplier is the manufacture of petroleum products, also, that electricity is distributed to almost all industries. Finally, we simulate a price increase scenario to obtain the potential impact on the economic structure.

Keywords : electricity industry; input-output matrix; structural analysis; multiplier effects; Mexico.
