Eurozone November Inflation Rate Weaker than Expected


Eurozone consumer price inflation is expected to increase to 1.5 percent year-on-year in November 2017 from 1.4 percent in the previous month, missing market expectations of 1.6 percent. Energy prices should rise at a faster pace while food inflation is expected to ease slightly.

Looking at the main components of euro area inflation, energy is expected to have the highest annual rate in November (4.7 percent, compared with 3 percent in October), followed by food, alcohol & tobacco (2.2 percent, compared with 2.3 percent in October), services (1.2 percent, stable compared with October) and non-energy industrial goods (0.4 percent, stable compared with October).

Annual core inflation, which excludes volatile prices of energy and unprocessed food and tobacco and at which the ECB looks in its policy decisions, is expected to remain at 0.9 percent, unchanged from the previous month's five-month low.

Euro Area Inflation Rate

In Euro Area, the inflation rate is calculated using the weighted average of the Harmonised Index of Consumer Price (HICP) aggregates. The main components of the HICP are: food, alcohol and tobacco (19 percent of the total weight), energy (11 percent), non-energy industrial goods (29 percent) and services (41 percent). The HICP aggregates are computed as the weighted average of each country’s HICP components. The weight of a country is its share of household final monetary consumption expenditure in the total of the country’s group. The local HICPs are supplied to the Eurostat by the National Statistical Institutes.
