The index has been on a continuous upward trend since December 2020, although there was some respite in June, with a small decline in the annual percentage change.

The index recorded an annual increase of 21.81 per cent at the end of the previous month.

By main product category, increases were recorded in metal products (26.95 per cent), wood, insulating, chemical and plastic products (18.50 per cent), minerals (15.11 per cent), mineral products (13.98 per cent) and electromechanical items (11.95 per cent).
