Producer prices in South Africa surged by 14.7% year-on-year in May of 2022, accelerating from a 13.9% rise in the previous month and topping market estimates of 14.1%. It marks the sixth straight month of double-digit producer inflation and the highest reading since records began in 2013, mainly on account of prices of coke, petroleum, chemical, rubber and plastic products (31.7% vs 28.4% in April), largely due to fuels. Additional upward pressure came from costs of food products, beverages and tobacco products (9.7% vs 8.3%), mostly food (12.3% vs 9.9%); and metals, machinery, equipment and computing equipment (15.9% vs 14.1%). On a monthly basis, producer prices advanced 1.8%, the same pace as in April but above market forecasts of a 1.3% increase. source: Statistics South Africa
