China - Producer Prices

Inflation decreases in August

Consumer prices rose 0.4% over the previous month in August, following July’s 0.6% increase. The print reflected higher prices for the food, tobacco and alcohol category.

Inflation fell from July’s 2.7% to 2.4% in August. The print matched the result that market analysts had expected. Annual average inflation remained stable at July’s 3.7% in August.

Annual producer prices (PPI), meanwhile, fell 2.0% year-on-year in August. The print was below the 2.4% drop in July and broadly in line with the 1.9% decrease that market analysts had expected.

FocusEconomics panelists forecast that inflation will average 2.8% in 2020, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate, and 2.1% in 2021. Meanwhile, the panel expects producer prices to decline 1.8% in 2020, which is up 0.4 percentage points from last month’s projection, before rebounding to a 0.9% rise in 2021.
