The Industrial Price Index (IPRI) measures the monthly development of the price of manufactured and sold products in the domestic market, during the first step of its commercialisation. The IPRI covers the sales prices coming out of the factory obtained by industrial establishments in the transactions which are carried out, excluding transport and commercialisation costs and VAT invoiced.
The index coverage extends to all industrial sectors, except construction. Therefore, extractive, manufacturing and production industries, distribution of electrical energy, water and gas are investigated.
In order to obtain this, an ongoing survey is conducted, each
month covering approximately 28,000 prices for 1,500 products,
in a sample of nearly 9,000 industrial establishments. The information
collected consists of current prices on the 15th day of each month.
Base 2015: updating the basket and the weightings
The first data for the IPRI, base 2015, is published in reference
to the month of January 2018. This base change has included updating
the sample of the products included in the basket. It has included
activity branches that have gained significance on national and
regional levels, and excluded others whose weight has decreased.
Among the changes made in base 2015, it is worth mentioning the
inclusion of gaseous fuel pipeline distribution. On the other
hand, the manufacture of leather garments, the manufacture of
glassware and the manufacture of musical instruments are no longer
represented in the basket.
Base 2015 weightings
The IPRI weightings have been calculated in agreement with the importance of activity branches (according to the value of its turnover) and products (according to the production value).
