Germany's producer prices decreased by 1.0% year-on-year in September 2020, the eighth consecutive month of decline and compared to market forecasts of a 1.4% drop.

Also, non-durable consumer goods edged down 0.1%, dragged down by pork cost (-16.3%), while prices of sugar increased 19.6%. Meantime, there were increases in prices of both capital goods (0.9%) and durables consumer goods (1.4%). Excluding energy, producer prices fell 0.2% in September, after declining 0.4% in August.
