Producer Price Indices in August 2007

Producer prices for manufactured goods rose by 1.8 per cent and export prices by 1.5 per cent, while import prices fell by 0.5 per cent from August 2006 to August 2007. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 2.6 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index amounted to 1.9 per cent.

The increase in the producer prices for manufactured goods was particularly attributable to risen prices of base metals and base chemicals from August 2006. The rise in the prices was curbed by lower prices of electric energy.

From July to August producer prices for manufactured products fell by 0.5 per cent. The fall was mainly due to cheaper prices of nickel and electric energy. The fall in the prices was held back by, among other things, risen prices of chemicals products.
