The PPI in industry measures the change in the trading prices of industrial products on the domestic and the non-domestic market at the initial stage of transactions. In combination, the sub-indices for the above two markets give the overall change in Producer Price Index in Industry. The measurement of the producer prices meets a need for information on the short-term economic activity both of the National Member State and the European Union as a whole. They permit monthly monitoring of prices at different stages of the manufacturing process and they are also a means of distinguishing effective growth of the activity from price changes and provide information to the business community on particular markets of interest to them.

The price data collected in the framework of the compilation of PPI refer mainly to transactions between the enterprises that produce and sell the selected products for reporting and the enterprises that buy those products, irrespective of whether those products are to be used as raw materials or as merchandise.
