Switzerland: Inflation softens in September

October 5, 2018

Consumer prices rose 0.1% over the prior month in September, following a flat print in August. September’s uptick was primarily driven by higher prices for clothing and footwear, and fresh vegetables. This was partially offset by lower prices for recreation and culture, and restaurants and hotels.

Inflation meanwhile eased to 1.0% in September from 1.2% in August. Annual average inflation was stable at 0.9% in September.

Panelists polled by FocusEconomics expect inflation to average 0.9% in 2018, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. For 2019, panelists expect inflation to average 1.0%, which is also unchanged from last month’s forecast.
