    The Producer Price Index (PPI) is a monthly survey that measures the price changes of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers. The PPI is conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and provides a key measure of inflation, alongside other indicators such as the Retail Price Index (RPI) and Corporate Services Price Index (CSPI).

    The input price indices measure change in the prices of materials and fuels bought by UK manufacturers for processing. These are not limited to just those materials used in the final product, but also include what is required by the company in its normal day to day running.
