Producer price indices in French industry

FRENCH MARKET: +0,2 %

In November, the producer price indices on the French market progressed slightly (+0,2 %), but quite homogeneously. In October, the increase of +0,8% was mainly due to energetic products. The prices are still lower than last year (-4,5 %).

The prices of refined petroleum products were again positively oriented

Consistently with the new increase of crude petroleum products (+4,7 %), the prices of refined petroleum products grew again in November, of +3,3 % after +3,1 % in October.

The food products prices decreased more slightly than in September and October

After two consecutive months of decline, the food products prices became almost stable (-0,1 %), thanks to the stability of meat prices and the rise of food raw materials.

While other products prices stabilized

The prices of other products stabilized or slightly increased in November: +0,3 % for textiles and wearing apparels, +0,1 % for wood and paper products. One exception: the [prices of] chemical products (-0,4 %), impacted by the falls of fertilisers and nitrogen compounds (-1,8 %) and of plastics in primary forms (-2,2 %),

FOREIGN MARKETS: +0,2 %

The slight progression of the French producer price indices on the external markets was quite general, i.e. +0,2 % after +0,4 % in October. Year-on-year, the withdrawal of these prices is now of -3,0 %.

ALL MARKETS: +0,2 %

In total, on both domestic and non-domestic markets, the progression of French industrial producer price indices was therefore of +0,2 % in November. On a year, the fall is quite noticeable (-4,1 %), but for coke and refined petroleum products, the shift is now only of -0,9 %.

Import prices indices of industrial products: +0,7 %

For import prices, the progression was sensibly more important (+0,7%) than for French producer prices. The withdraw on a year is now compiled at -3,2 %. This increase of November resulted mainly from the rise of coke and refined petroleum (+2,1%), but also from the prices of food products (+0,6 %), due notably to dairy products (+4,4 %).
