Swiss Producer and Import Price Index in June 2019: -1.4 percent YoY, -0,5 percent MoM

Summary:
The Producer Price Index (PPI) or officially named “Producer and Import Price Index” describes the changes in prices for producers and importers. For us it is interesting because it is used in the formula for the Real Effective Exchange Rate. When producers and importers profit on lower price changes when compared to other countries, then the Swiss Franc reduces its overvaluation. The Swiss PPI values of -6% in 2015 (see below), compared to -3% in Europe or -1% in the U.S., diminished the overvaluation. In 2017, however, producer prices are rising again – in both Europe and Switzerland.

15.07.2019 – The Producer and Import Price Index fell in June 2019 by 0.5% compared with the previous month, reaching 101.7 points (December 2015 = 100). The decline is due in particular to lower prices for petroleum products, petroleum and natural gas as well as basic metals and semi-finished metal products. Compared with June 2018, the price level of the whole range of domestic and imported products fell by 1.4%. These are some of the findings from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

Produzenten- und Importpreisindex sinkt im Juni 2019 um 0,5%

15.07.2019 – Der Gesamtindex der Produzenten- und Importpreise sank im Juni 2019 gegenüber dem Vormonat um 0,5% und erreichte den Stand von 101,7 Punkten (Dezember 2015 = 100). Der Rückgang ist vor allem auf tiefere Preise für Mineralölprodukte, Erdöl und Erdgas sowie Metalle und Metallhalbzeug zurückzuführen. Im Vergleich zum Juni 2018 ging das Preisniveau des Gesamtangebots von Inland- und Importprodukten um 1,4% zurück. Dies geht aus den Zahlen des Bundesamts für Statistik (BFS) hervor.

Für den Rückgang des Produzentenpreisindexes gegenüber dem Vormonat waren vor allem die tieferen Preise für Mineralölprodukte verantwortlich. Billiger wurden auch Metalle, Metallhalbzeug und Schrott. Steigende Preise beobachtete man dagegen für Holzprodukte.

Tiefere Preise gegenüber dem Mai 2019 registrierte man im Importpreisindex insbesondere für Mineralölprodukte, Erdöl und Erdgas sowie Metalle und Metallhalbzeug. Preisrückgänge zeigten auch Kern- und Steinobst sowie Produkte der Bauschreinerei und des Innenausbaus. Teurer wurden hingegen Automobile.
