November Electrical Price Index Down 0.3%

Dec. 19, 2014

Building Wire & Cable (-1.5%) and Power Cable (-1.3%) led all other electrical product categories in Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index (EPI) to a monthly decline in November of -0.3%, a mark that’s up +0.6% over Nov. 2013. Building Wire was down 3.2% year-over-year  (YOY) and Power Cable is down -0.4% YOY. No other product categories showed a change of more than 1%.

Note: All EPI series represent Global Insight aggregates of Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) producer price indices (PPIs). The revised data partly reflect redefinitions of specific PPIs by the BLS, but mostly reflect the rebenchmarking of all EPI price series to a 1997 base year. The four following EPI series have been affected by BLS redefinitions: boxes, conduit (fittings), non­metallic conduit, and generators. Sources: U.S. Bureau of  Labor  Statistics; Global Insight
