Producer prices in Japan surged 10% in April 2022 from a year ago, rising at a record rate as the Ukraine crisis and a weak yen pushed up the cost of energy and raw materials. The latest figure also accelerated from an upwardly revised 9.7% gain in the previous month and posted higher than forecast for a 9.4% increase. Cost rose further for all commodities, with sharp increases in: lumber & wood (56.4%), petroleum & coal products (30.9%), iron & steel (29.9%), nonferrous steel (25%) and chemicals & related products (10.2%). The soaring producer prices are likely to put upward pressure on Japan’s consumer inflation, which currently still remains below the central bank’s 2% target due mainly to weak wages and household spending. On a monthly basis, producer prices increased 1.2% after an upwardly revised 0.9% gain in the previous month. source: Bank of Japan
