The Industrial Price Index (IPRI) is a situational indicator that measures the monthly development of the price of products manufactured and sold in the domestic market, during the first step of their commercialisation. In other words, the sales prices of products coming out of the factory, excluding transport and commercialisation costs and the VAT invoiced.
To obtain this a continuous monthly survey is carried out, which investigates 8500 industrial establishments every month.
As of January 2013, the IPRI methodology has been completely renewed. The methodological changes made in the IPRI, base 2010, have turned it into a more dynamic indicator, which adapts better to changes in the industrial sector, as the weightings will be updated annually, and it will be possible to include new products and/or establishments in the basket as soon as their productive activity becomes significant.
