On all markets (French market and foreign markets), prices were almost unchanged in November (+0.1% as in October, following –0.1% in September). Year over year, they declined by 1.9%, mainly due to prices for refined petroleum products (–27.4%).

FRENCH MARKET: +0.1%

In November 2015, French producer prices in industry for the French market were practically stable (+0.1% following +0.2% in October). The increase in prices for mining and quarrying products, energy and water was partially offset by the slight drop in prices for manufactured products.

Prices for other energy products grew

Prices for mining and quarrying products, energy, water continued to grow (+1.1% in November following +1.9% in October). This increase was mainly due to the changeover to winter rates for electricity transport. However, prices on the electricity wholesale market decreased, owing to mild temperatures.

Prices for other manufactured products declined slightly

In November, prices for other manufactured products dropped again but more slowly than in the previous months (–0.2% after –0.4% in October and –0.6% in September and August), due to the stability of prices for chemical products (0.0% following –1.6% in October).

FOREIGN MARKETS: +0.0%

Producer prices of French industrial products sold on foreign markets remained flat in November as in October.
