Producer prices in Japan jumped 9.1% year-on-year in October 2022, slowing from September’s upwardly revised 10.2% gain but posting above expectations for a sharper drop to 8.8%, as high commodity prices and a weak yen continued to inflate input costs for companies. Still, October’s figure was the lowest reading since January, possibly reflecting the downward trend in global inflation. Upward price pressures came from nearly all components, with notable increases in: electric, power, gas & water (43.2%), minerals (27.5%), iron & steel (22.4%), metal products (13%) and pulp, paper & related products (9.5%). On a monthly basis, producer prices increased 0.6% in October, slowing from an upwardly revised 1% rise in September. source: Bank of Japan
