Producer prices for manufactured products went down especially due to reductions in the prices of oil products, electricity, chemicals and chemical products from last year's January. The fall in producer prices was particularly curbed by risen prices of paper and paper products.

The export price index fell by 2.0 per cent and the import price index by 7.1 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went down by 4.0 per cent. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply including taxes fell by 3.6 per cent.

Export prices were in particular depressed by the falling prices of oil products from January 2014. The fall in prices was slowed down, in particular, by higher prices of manufacturing of paper and paper products. The fall in import prices was, in turn, especially caused by lower prices of oil products, chemicals and chemical products from last year's January. The fall in the prices was particularly curbed by risen prices of basic precious metals and other non-ferrous metals.

From December 2014 to January 2015, producer prices for manufactured products fell by 0.9 per cent. The fall was mainly due to decreased prices of oil products from the previous month.
