EM’s March EPI Shows No Movement

April 28, 2017
Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index (EPI) has been stuck in slow-growth mode for quite some time, but it has recently shown no growth in both its month-to-month and year-over-year data, as it did in March.
Electrical Marketing’s Electrical Price Index (EPI) has been stuck in slow-growth  mode for quite some time, but it has recently shown no growth in both its month-to-month and year-over-year data, as it did in March. The only notable exception was Power Wire & Cable, which dropped -2.8% from Feb. 2017 and -7.6% from Feb. 2016. No other product category showed monthly 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
