Changes in the prices of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers including price indices of materials and fuels purchased (input prices) and factory gate prices (output prices). Also including quarterly estimates monitoring the changes in prices charged for services provided to UK-based customers for a range of industries.



The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs
  • are well explained and readily accessible
  • are produced according to sound methods
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.

Changes to this release date

  • Previous date:
    18 January 2023 07:00
    Reason for change:
    Quality assurance checks have identified issues with some detailed item prices feeding into incorrect groups within the food section of the PPI basket. As a result, we did not publish PPI data on 14 December 2022, and further time and investigations are needed, which means publication on 18 January 2023 is not possible.
