Highlights
The combined producer and import price index dipped 0.1 percent on the month and also from a year ago in June. The annual rate was accordingly 0.2 percentage points short of its May outturn, its first negative reading since last November.

Headline weakness in June reflected 0.1 percent monthly falls in both the domestic PPI and import prices. Annual growth of the former now stands at minus 0.6 percent and of the latter at 0.9 percent.

The monthly decrease in producer prices was mainly due to a 4.9 percent drop in waste collection and recycling and a 2.8 percent decline in wood products. Most other categories were relatively stable. Import price components were rather more volatile.

The core composite price index was unchanged versus May and 0.6 percent lower on the year, a 0.1 percentage point decline from the mid-quarter rate. Pipeline inflation pressures remain very subdued.

Definition
The producer price and import price index focuses on the actual prices of products on the market (transaction price) at the time of the order. The prices of domestic products are taken at the producer or factory level, excluding value added tax and consumption taxes. For imports, prices are collected at the Swiss border, without the value added tax, taxes on consumption and tariffs. Changes in the index provide a guide to inflation from the point of view of the product's producer/manufacturer  Why Investors Care
