Producer prices for manufactured products went down especially due to reductions in the prices of oil products, chemicals and chemical products, and iron and steel from last year's March. The fall in producer prices was slowed down especially by higher prices of paper and paper board products.

The export price index fell by 0.2 per cent and the import price index by 4.2 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went down by 2.2 per cent. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply including taxes fell by 1.8 per cent.

Export prices were in particular depressed by the falling prices of oil products from March 2014. The fall in prices was slowed down especially by higher prices of paper and paper board products. The fall in import prices was in turn especially caused by lower prices of oil products, chemicals and chemical products from last year's March. The fall in prices was slowed down, in particular, by higher prices of electronic appliances.

From February to March, producer prices for manufactured products went up by 0.5 per cent. The rise was mainly due to increased prices of oil products from the previous month.
