Producer Price Index

The Producer Price Index (PPI) is a monthly survey that measures the price changes of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers and provides a key measure of inflation, alongside other indicators such as the Retail Prices Index (RPI), Consumer Prices Index (CPI) and Services Producer Prices Index (SPPI). This Statistical Bulletin contains a comprehensive selection of data on input and output index series. It contains producer price indices of materials and fuels purchased and output of manufacturing industry by broad sector.

The output price indices measure change in the prices of goods produced by UK manufacturers (these are often called 'factory gate prices').

The input price indices measure change in the prices of materials and fuels bought by UK 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.

Imported Price Indices (IPIs) are a series of economic indicators that measure change in the prices of goods and raw materials imported into the UK. IPIs are a key component of input price indices.

Exported Price Indices (EPIs) are a series of economic indicators that measure change in the prices of goods manufactured in the UK but destined for export markets.

Output Prices: Summary

In the year to October 2011, movements in output prices for UK manufactured products were as follows:

  • The output price index for home sales of manufactured products rose 5.7 per cent, compared with a rise of 6.3 per cent last month.

  • The output price index excluding food, beverages, tobacco & petroleum rose 3.4 per cent, compared with a rise of 3.8 per cent last month.

  • The output price index excluding excise duty rose 5.9 per cent, compared with a rise of 6.4 per cent last month. 

 Between September and October:

  • The output price index for home sales of manufactured products was unchanged from September. There were price increases in food products and clothing, textiles & leather products. These increases were offset by price decreases in chemical & pharmaceutical products and computer, electrical & optical products.

Output Prices: Summary Of Statistics

The overall output price index rose 5.7 per cent in the year to October, compared with a rise of 6.3 per cent in the year to September. The index was unchanged between September and October, with price rises in food products and clothing, textiles & leather products being offset by falls in the price of chemical & pharmaceutical and computer, electrical & optical products.

Food product prices rose 0.4 per cent between September and October and rose 9.0 per cent in the year to October. The monthly rise was due to widespread increases across a range of products, including a 0.7 per cent increase in the price of preserved meat & meat products and a 0.5 per cent rise in the price of other food products.

Clothing, textiles & leather product prices rose 0.2 per cent between September and October and rose 6.2 per cent in the year to October. This is the highest annual rate since records began (January 1997). The monthly rise was mainly due to a 0.5 per cent increase in textile prices, most notably made-up textile articles, except apparel, which increased by 1.0 per cent.

Chemical & pharmaceutical product prices fell 0.7 per cent between September and October and rose 5.5 per cent in the year to October. This is the lowest annual rate since September 2010, when the index rose 4.9 per cent. The monthly decrease was mainly due to a 3.3 per cent fall in the price of other organic basic chemicals and a 2.5 per cent fall in the price of fertilisers and nitrogen compounds.

Computer, electrical & optical product prices fell 0.4 per cent between September and October and fell 0.6 per cent in the year to October. The last time the monthly fall was larger was in December 2010, when the index fell 1.4 per cent in the month. The monthly fall was mainly due to a 1.5 per cent fall in the price of communication equipment and a 1.9 per cent fall in the price of wiring and wiring devices.

Output price index excluding food, beverages, tobacco & petroleum

The output price index for manufactured products excluding food, beverages, tobacco & petroleum rose 3.4 per cent in the year to October, compared with a rise of 3.8 per cent in the year to September. This index is not affected by changes in excise duty. The index fell 0.1 per cent between September and October compared with a rise of 0.3 per cent between September and October 2010.

Output price index excluding excise duty

This index rose 5.9 per cent in the year to October, compared with a rise of 6.4 per cent in the year to September. The index excluding excise duty rose 0.1 per cent between September and October, compared with a rise of 0.6 per cent between September and October 2010.

Input Prices: Summary Of Statistics

The overall input index rose 14.1 per cent in the year to October, compared with a rise of 17.7 per cent in the year to September. This is the lowest annual rate since December 2010, when the index rose 13.1 per cent.

The input index for all manufacturing fell 0.8 per cent between September and October compared with a rise of 2.4 per cent between September and October 2010. The monthly fall in the input index mainly reflected price decreases in crude oil, imported metals and home produced food products, these were partially offset by a rise in the price of fuels (inc CCL).

Crude oil prices fell 1.4 per cent between September and October and rose 36.4 per cent in the year to October.

Imported metal product prices fell 4.5 per cent between September and October, which is the largest monthly fall since October 2008 when the index fell 5.9 per cent. The annual rise of 7.3 per cent in the year to October is the lowest annual rate since September 2009, when the index rose 1.9 per cent. The monthly fall was due to widespread decreases across a broad range of products, most notably a 12.5 per cent fall in the price of non EU imports of precious metals, a 13.9 per cent fall in the price of non EU imports of lead, zinc and tin and a 3.8 per cent fall in the price of EU imports of copper.

Home produced food prices fell 1.1 per cent between September and October and rose 3.1 per cent in the year to October. The monthly fall was due to widespread decreases across a range of products, including a 6.0 per cent fall in the price of home produced vegetables and a 4.1 per cent fall in the price of home produced potatoes.

Fuel (inc CCL) prices rose 3.5 per cent between September and October and rose 8.3 per cent in the year to October. The monthly rise was mainly due to a 3.5 per cent increase in the price of both electricity and gas.

Input price index excluding the food, beverages, tobacco & petroleum industries

The index for materials and fuels purchased by manufacturing industry excluding the food, beverages, tobacco & petroleum industries fell 0.5 per cent in seasonally adjusted terms between September and October. This is the largest monthly fall in the seasonally adjusted series since November 2009, when the index fell 0.7 per cent. The unadjusted index rose 10.5 per cent in the year to October, compared with a rise of 13.1 per cent in the year to September.

Revisions to data provide one indication of the reliability of key indicators. The above table shows summary information on the size and direction of the revisions which have been made to the data covering a five year period. A statistical test has been applied to the average revision to find out if it is statistically significantly different from zero. An asterisk (*) shows that the test is significant.

The table presents a summary of the differences between the first estimates published between October 2005 and September 2010 and the estimates published 12 months later. These numbers include the effect of the reclassification onto SIC 2007.

Background notes

  1. Triennial review of Producer Price Indices and Service Producer Price Indices

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is required by Government to regularly review each of its statistical surveys. We are currently in the process of conducting a review of the PPI and SPPI and would be grateful to hear from users of these outputs. Further information, along with copies of user questionnaires, can be found through the links:

  2. Review of the MM17: Price Index Numbers for current Cost Accounting

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) conducts regular reviews of all of its publications. Previous reviews of the PPI publications have suggested that the frequency of the MM17 publication could be reduced without any significant impact on users.

    The primary users of indices in tables 1 and 2 were in fact National Accountants, who used these data as deflators for the Capex and Stocks series in the National Accounts. Following the reclassification to the Standard Industrial Classification 2007, National Accounts are using alternative sources to deflate the accounts.

    Indices in tables 3 and 4, which are still used for asset valuations, are also published in our MM22 publication. Based on the previous user feedback, and the change in requirements for the National Accounts, ONS will suspend the MM17 publication following the November 2011 publication, due to be released on 29 December 2011.

    We will publish a response to this consultation and a proposed way forward for the MM17 report in the New Year.

    A Summary Quality Report (95.6 Kb Pdf) for the PPI describes in detail the intended uses of the statistics presented in this publication, their general quality and the methods used to produce them.

  4. Producer Price Index And Services Producer Prices: Implementation Of SIC 2007

    Producer Prices has implemented the change to the Standard Industrial Classification 2007 (SIC 2007). The most significant change to PPI output prices involves the reclassification of ‘recovered secondary raw materials’ and ‘publishing’. These are no longer classified in the manufacturing sector, but are classified under services. In addition to this, a new SIC division, ‘repair, installation and maintenance of machinery and equipment’ has been created. Under SIC 2003 these activities were classified within the output of manufacturing, but as part of the specific industries where this activity took place.

    Fundamental changes have been made to the classification of the PPI Trade surveys, Import Price indices (IPI) and Export Price Indices (EPI). As part of the reclassification project the classification of these trade surveys have become compliant with Eurostat’s Short Term Statistics Regulation. The collection of IPI and EPI will now be on an SIC basis, a switch from the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) and Combined Nomenclature (CN) previously used. PPI input prices are heavily dependant on IPI.

    Further information on the changes and impact of the SIC 2007 (84.1 Kb Pdf) on prices can be found here.

  5. Relevance To Users

    Index numbers shown in the main text of this bulletin are on a net sector basis. The index for any sector relates only to transactions between that sector and other sectors, sales and purchases within sectors are excluded. However, the more detailed figures shown in reference tables 4 and 6 (207.5 Kb Excel sheet) are on a gross basis; that is, intra industry sales and purchases are included in each of these indices.

    Indices relate to average prices for a month. The full effect of a price change occurring part way through any month will only be reflected in the following month’s index.

    All index numbers exclude VAT. Excise duty (on cigarettes, manufactured tobacco, alcoholic liquor and petroleum products) are included, except where labelled otherwise. Since PPIs exclude VAT, they are not affected by the increase in the standard rate of VAT to 20 per cent from 4 January 2011.

    The detailed input indices of prices of materials and fuels purchased by industry (Reference Table 6) (207.5 Kb Excel sheet) do not include the climate change levy (CCL). This is because each industry can, in practice, pay its own rate for the various forms of energy, depending on the various negotiated discounts and exemptions that apply.

  6. Common Pitfalls In Interpreting Series

    Expectations of accuracy and reliability in sample surveys are often too high. Revisions and sampling variability are inevitable consequences of the trade off between timeliness, accuracy and the burden on respondents. Details of sampling variability are included elsewhere in this bulletin.

    Very few statistical revisions arise as a result of ‘errors’ in the popular sense of the word. All estimates, by definition, are subject to statistical ‘error’ but, in this context, the word refers to the uncertainty in any process or calculation that uses sampling, estimation or modelling. Most revisions reflect either the adoption of new statistical techniques or the incorporation of new information which allows the statistical error of previous estimates to be reduced. Only rarely are there avoidable ‘errors’ such as human or system failures, and such mistakes are made quite clear when they are discovered and corrected.

  7. Accuracy

    Figures for the latest two months are provisional and the latest five months are subject to revisions in light of (a) late and revised respondent data and (b), for the seasonally adjusted series, revisions to seasonal adjustment factors which are re-estimated every month. A routine seasonal adjustment review is normally conducted in the autumn annually. There are no planned methodological changes in the next 12 months.
