September EPI Shows Little Change

Nov. 8, 2013
Power cable (+1%) was the only major product category in Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index to show any change in September from August.

Power cable (+1%) was the only major product category in Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index to show any change in September from August. Interestingly, building cable showed no month-to-month change over the same time period but both categories were down year-to-year from September, decreasing 1.2% and 3.5%, respectively. Wiring devices increased 0.9% in September.

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
