The Producer Price Index (PPI) are a series of economic indicators which measure the price movement of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers. Often called 'factory gate prices' they are published monthly.
Input PPIs measure changes in the prices of materials and fuel bought by manufacturers for processing. These are not limited to just those materials used in the final product, but also include what is required by the company in its normal day to day running.
The output PPIs indicate changes in the prices that manufacturers charge for goods at the time of order.
These National Statistics are produced to high professional standards and released according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
