Thailand - Producer Prices

Inflation remains below target at the outset of 2018

Consumer prices in Thailand increased 0.07% over the previous month in January, contrasting a 0.08% decrease in December. The marginal jump in consumer prices was chiefly driven by higher prices for non-food and beverages, and food and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as for transportation and communication, and housing and furnishing.

Inflation eased from 0.8% in December to 0.7% in January, slightly above market expectations of a stronger moderation. As a result, inflation remained below the Central Bank’s target range of 1.0%–4.0%. Core inflation, meanwhile, remained steady at the previous month’s 0.6% in January. As inflation has proved elusive during 2017 and at the start of the new year, it is expected that the Bank of Thailand will maintain its accommodative monetary policy at its 14 February meeting.
