We are a week into June, so the time was right for the May 2017 economic report for EVE Online to show up.
As expected, dipping into the data shows Delve still at the top when it comes to ratting and mining. The Imperium still care bears the hell out of its systems. It is a selling point for the coalition.
We shall if the Rorqual and anomaly changes coming on Tuesday will put a dent in the mining side of that.
For other economic indicators however, The Forge region, with Jita in the role of central trade hub of New Eden, still ranks supreme.
For the market size The Forge has no competition, ringing it at 600 trillion ISK for May.
Domain, the region with the next highest numbers, hosting the trade hub of Amarr, only showed 75 trillion ISK for May. Surprisingly though, third place doesn’t fall to the regions that are home to the tertiary trade hubs of Hek or Dodixie. Instead, Delve is in third place with 24 trillion ISK for May. Not bad for a region held by a single coalition. We sell a lot of stuff to ourselves. Certainly the market in the Keepstar in 1DQ1-A seems to have most things I need.
A lot of what appears on our market is shipped in from Jita. The groups running the shipping services run the Jita to Delve route frequently. But we do build some of our own stuff as well.
The Forge is out in front again with 26 trillion ISK in value manufactured. With Jita being what it is, people want to produce close to market, so The Forge at the top of the list, with adjacent regions of Lonetrek and The Citadel putting up solid numbers as well due to proximity.
But second place goes to Delve which manufactured 20 trillion ISK in goods. I am sure capital and supercaps figure heavily in the mix. But there are engineering complexes all over key systems in Delve building things. You could see a couple in my post about the TNT Keepstar, and when you go into KarmaFleet’s home system your overview is pretty much overwhelmed by citadels and engineering complexes.
So I guess if ratting and mining numbers are seen as selling points for the Imperium, then we might also have a line there for manufacturers as well.
