Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 2.9 per cent in the year

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for manufactured products rose by 2.9 per cent, export prices by 1.9 per cent and import prices by 4.7 per cent from March 2009 to March 2010. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 2.7 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 2.8 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was caused by increases in the prices of, for instance, oil products, copper and pulp from the previous year's March. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of metals and electronic products.

From February to March, producer prices for manufactured goods went up by 0.3 per cent. The rise in the prices was particularly due to increases in the prices of oil products and metals. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the price of electricity.
