Capacity utilization as measures of performance indicators of an industry has a long history of research. Every industry is endlessly in a course of self-appraisal and in search of tools for measuring its own current performance in comparison with the various targets, past achievements and operative capacity. Manufacturing capacity utilization is such a key indicator of economic performance which explains changes in investment, inflation, long-run output growth etc. This article tries to overview the studies undertaken on capacity utilization in India and abroad so far to find the gap existed for further empirical research. This research review gives closer and analytical insight into the capacity utilization and may provide an answer in future to the prospective researchers to the debate of whether liberalization has significantly contributed to the improvement in industrial growth and performance or not, amidst the shift in paradigm from “state-intervention-cum-import substitution” to that of “liberalization-cum-export led-growth”.
