Producer price indices in industry

FRENCH MARKET: +0,2 %

In December, the producer price indices on the French market went on increasing (+0,2 %), on the same pace than in November.

The prices of refined petroleum products still increased, but moderately

In a context of slight decrease of crude petroleum prices, the prices of refined petroleum products progressed only of +0,8 %, vs. +3,3 % and +3,2 % respectively in November and October. The persistence of a noticeable rise of kerosene prices in December explains this progression.

The prices of transport equipment and beverages were increasing

After three months of almost stability, transport equipment prices progressed markedly (+0,8 %), because of the sales of “models 2010” motorcars. The food products prices increased slightly, thanks to the increase of beverages prices (+1,1 %).

FOREIGN MARKETS: +0,0 %

The stability of the French producer price indices on the external markets results from a moderate increase of food products prices (+0,7 %) and a noticeable decrease of refined petroleum products (-2,1 %). The difference between this latter change and the domestic market (+0,8 %) comes from a different structure of the sales between the two kinds of markets. The increase of food products prices was in line with tensions on food materials prices, especially cocoa prices.

ALL MARKETS: +0,1 %

On all markets, the progression was of +0,1 % on one month. On a year, the decrease lessened (-2,4 % after -4,0 % in November): the prices of refined petroleum products recorded then an increase of +21,9 % while food products prices exposed a notable withdraw (-8,6 %) due for -5,3 % to an accounting artefact “LME” (cf. addition to IR July 2009 n° 206).

Import prices indices of industrial products: +0,1 %

The import prices of industrial products were almost stable in December (+0,1 %), after a progression of +0,7 % in November. The increase of food products prices (+0,2 %) was moderated by the noticeable decrease of dairy products and flours. On a year, the withdraw of the whole industrial products prices reached -0,6 %.
