Electrical Price Index — June 2014

July 25, 2014
Electrical Marketing's Electrical Price Index (EPI) for June again showed little change, with only three categories changing more than 1% month-to-month.

Change Hard to Come By Again in June EPI

June 2014 is yet another month of very little change in Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index (EPI), with the total index changing just +0.4% from May and +0.6% from May 2013. Monthly changes in individual product categories of more than 1% were hard to come by, other than Electrical Measurement Instruments, which increased 2.9% over May. Switchgear and ballasts declined 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
