Industrial producer prices in Hungary rose by 37% on average in November 2022 compared to one year earlier, according to data published by the Central Statistical Office (KSH).

The faster growth in domestic output prices was due to the proportion of the energy industry, where a significant price increase occurred, being much larger in the domestic than in the non-domestic output. In addition to the steep rise in energy prices, the rise in base material prices and the weakening of the forint also had a price-raising effect, according to KSH.

Compared to November 2021, domestic output prices were 63.7% higher on average, within which they rose by 35.6% in manufacturing, representing a weight of 62%, and – owing to a drastic increase in world market prices and to amendments to the regulation of the administrative price – by 131% in the energy industry (electricity, gas, steam, and air conditioning supply), with a weight of 33%.

Prices in Hungary went up by 82.9% in energy and intermediate producer branches together, by 16.2% in capital goods producer, and by 39.4% in consumer goods producer branches out of the end-use groups of the producer branches of industry.

Industrial non-domestic output prices were 23.4% higher, within which the price rise was 21.6% in manufacturing, representing a weight of 96%, and 59% in the energy industry, with a weight of 3.8%.

In January-November 2022, domestic output prices rose by 50.7%, non-domestic output prices by 24.8%, and industrial producer prices as a whole by 33.6% compared to the same period of 2021.
