Czech Republic - Harmonized Inflation (end of period)

Inflation plunges to lowest level since April in October

Inflation came in at 15.1% in October, which was down from September’s 18.0%. October's reading marked the weakest inflation rate since April. The decline was broad-based, with reduced price pressures recorded for housing and utilities, food and non-alcoholic beverages, and transportation.

The trend pointed up, with annual average inflation coming in at 13.5% in October (September: 12.7%).

Lastly, consumer prices dropped 1.44% in October over the previous month, contrasting the 0.80% rise seen in September.

Commenting on the short-term outlook for inflation, Frantisek Taborsky, analyst at ING, stated:

“For the coming months, we can expect inflation to be only slightly higher in YoY numbers, but January remains the big question. On the one hand, based on energy supplier announcements and other anecdotal reports, it seems that a massive new year's repricing upwards can be expected. On the other hand, the government's price cap comes into play, which unevenly affects households depending on their contract.”

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists forecast that inflation will average 8.8% in 2023, which is up 0.4 percentage points from last month’s Consensus, and 3.2% in 2024.
