Current economic trends from 20 to 24 January 2020: Slovenian industrial producer prices
Last year industrial producer prices rose on the domestic market and declined on foreign markets.
Year-on-year growth in Slovenian industrial producer prices declined to 0.6% last year due to lower prices on foreign markets. With the moderation of foreign demand, prices on foreign markets in all product groups were lower year on year mainly owing to lower prices of intermediate goods (by 0.9%), which account for almost half of the index value. Price growth on the domestic market strengthened somewhat, particularly due to strong growth in prices of energy (higher prices in electricity, gas and steam supply, where year-on-year growth is moving around 15%). Amid increased spending and higher meat prices, somewhat higher price growth was also recorded for non-durable consumer goods (2.3%).
