Producer Price Indices in December 2008

Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.5 per cent, while export prices fell by 4.4 per cent and import prices by 7.4 per cent from December 2007 to December 2008. The basic price index for domestic supply fell by 0.1 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was -0.8 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of electricity from December 2007. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the prices of oil products and non-ferrous metals.

From November to December 2008, producer prices for manufactured products fell by 2.2 per cent. The fall in the prices was especially due to reductions in the prices of oil products.
