French July Inflation Rate Confirmed at 1.2%
France's consumer price inflation rate was confirmed at 1.2 percent year-on-year in July 2021, down from the previous month's one-and-a-half-year high of 1.5 percent, mainly due to a decline in cost for manufactured goods (-1.1 percent vs 0.7 percent in June), linked to the postponed summer sales, and softer increases of the prices of services (0.6 percent vs 0.8 percent) and tobacco (5.1 percent vs 5.3 percent). Meanwhile, energy inflation accelerated (12.3 percent vs 10.9 percent) and prices of food rebounded (0.9 percent vs -0.2 percent). The annual core inflation rate, which exclude volatile items such as unprocessed food and energy, eased to 0.4 percent in July from 1.1 percent in June. On a monthly basis, consumer prices advanced 0.1 percent, the same pace as in June.

French Inflation Rate Falls Less than Forecast in July
France's consumer price inflation rate is expected to ease to 1.2 percent in July 2021, from last month's one-and-a-half-year high of 1.5 percent but above market expectations of 1.0 percent, according to preliminary estimates. This decrease in inflation should result from the downturn in manufactured good prices, linked to the postponed summer sales, the slowdown in the prices of services, and to a lesser extent tobacco. Conversely, the prices of food should rebound and those of energy should accelerate. On a monthly basis, consumer prices are seen rising 0.1 percent in July, the same as in the previous month and beating forecasts of a 0.1 percent drop.
